dual 5970 video card gpu association

Discussion created by guilder on Mar 16, 2011

Hello All,

I have dual 5970 video cards setup independantly (not crossfired) and two monitors connected one per card. 

My idea is to boost my app performance by creating a GPU specific GL context, so I created my app that creates two display windows one on each monitor, in turn creating OpenGL context per GPU/card, in a way the context is GPU associated on which the display window was created, this I believe I achieved the GPU assosication (WGL_AMD_gpu_association) without needing to code anything in.

AMD claims this is equivalent of creating OGL context using API per this

Can anyone here confirm its really the same when it comes to app performance?

Thanks in advance
