Limit the precentage of use of gpu (say 80%)

Hi all,

This is my first post here.  Nice to meet you all.

I got my HD6570 last week.  And I feel excited about OpenCL computing on GPUs.  It's really fast.

However, I have one question.

My simulation can fully utilize the gpus for a long time.  It can take one hour something.

Because the program is so demanding, I cannot use my computer smoothly, say browsing websites.  I would like to ask, it is possible to limit the maximum use of gpu? 

In OpenMP, we can use omp_set_num_threads(n); to control the use of threads.  So, I am looking for a similar stuff.

Thank You.
