Hello

I am comparing performance of OpenMP with that of OpenCL on CPUs and my system has 8 cores. But I need comparisons for 2, 4, 6 and 8 cores respectively. I can activiate number of cores in OpenMP through "set_num_threads(n)" function or an environment variable; But I dont know how could I do same in OpenCL, is there alternative of OpenMP set_num_threads API in OpenCL ?
