Posting a question regarding the processor A6-7400K (CPU+GPU) and OpenCL.

 

I am planning to use an AMD A6 series processor (A6-7400K with CPU + GPU) and I have confirmed that it is compatible with AMD OpenCL 2.0 driver (https://streamcomputing.eu/blog/2015-02-10/overview-of-opencl-2-0-support-samples-blogs-and-drivers/).

 

The question is:

For using the GPU of the processor for parallel processing with OpenCL, I prefer to be able to disable its use by any video (or graphics), so that the integrated GPU of the processor to be dedicated to the parallel-processing with OpenCL. Is it any way please that this can be done, like for example from the BIOS settings? In that case does BIOS disable the GPU use selectively? That disabling only its use by the video, while allowing its use for OpenCL programming? Thank you.
