For writing and testing ocl code I use a system with an
old cpu (Q9650) with only one PCIe-2 slot. The gpu mounted
on the pci-2 slot is a 280X. This set up was used to install
Ubuntu, the gpu driver, opencl and clffts. It has worked nicely.
I have two more gpu cards, a second 280x and an HD 7950, which
i would like to test using the code already written and I very
much prefer not having to reinstall everything for each
replacement card. I am not certain if a straight card swap
would work ok either.
How is one to go about replacing the existing gpu with the
other two for tesing opencl code avoiding/minimizing -if possible-
