I just ordered my new PC configuration below and I would like to get some advice for starting working doing OpenCL on both GPU and CPU on this config.


The CPU side config is composed by :

Noctua NH-U12P SE2 (CPU cooling)

Kingston 8Go DDR3 1600MHz CL9 HyperX (memory ...)

AMD FX 8350 Black Edition 4.0GHz (8 cores CPU)

Gigabyte 990FXA-UD5 (mainboard)


The GPU card is not present here but I will order it later, I will start first with a med end HDxxxx card.


Here are my questions if I use APP SDK:

- Is it possible to support the 8 cores independently (address kernel execution on different cores) ?

- Is it possible to mix AMD FX kernel execution + Nvidia GPU kernel execution or do I need to use ATI HD technology ??
