OpenCL on Ubuntu-machine without graphics card

I installed the 2.3-sdk, but only platform reported is an NVIDIA platform.

I want to test my Intel multi-core CPU for OpenCL programming, so I installed the v2.3-sdk, but without having an ATI graphics card installed. When I run the CLInfo sample program, it only reports one platform found, namely one for "OpenCL 1.0 CUDA 3.2.1". (There is a GeForce card in the computer.)

Does this mean that I should install an ATI driver (for a graphics card?) in order for the OpenCL functions to find the CPU-platform?

(Or do I have to actually have an ATI card in the machine because the CPU will only show up as a device inside an "ATI-platform" in OpenCL?)
