    Swapping gpus




      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-

      any reinstallation?
