Compatibility

Dec 3, 2014 at 3:45 PM
Hi, I am new with this and I find it very interesting. I have been reading the user's manual and I am still trying to find out if this could be something for my application.
What I still don't get (sorry if this is a trivial question) is what are the system requirements for running Cudafy. We are supposed to have a GPU device installed in our computer, but what GPU's are actually compatible with all this? Any device? Or are there only specific compatible devices? In other words, if I implement Cudafy, would it run in any system?

You'll need an NVIDIA GPU in a system for using CUDA. You could also try targeting OpenCL devices which allows use of NVIDIA and AMD GPUs as well as CPUs. You need to make sure the correct OpenCL SDK is installed.

Hi, thanks for replaying.
I count here with an AMD RADEON HD 6450, which according to AMD allows APP. I have installed the SDK AMD provides, but when I launch the "Check for OpenCL" in the Cudafy viewer it doesn't find a device. Instead it says:

Error: The type initializer for 'Cudafy.Host.OpenCLDevice' threw an exception.

Any idea about what might be going wrong?
