May I ask questions?
Using a GPU to program with is something I was surprised to learn about recently.
So I have the GTX550TI and I plan on a second so they can work together I take it.
I figure that these two will provide a fair training experience yes?
The Tesla's look cool but are not deserved at this time. I'll have to earn them with good works.
So I need to find that driver you mention? Then reinstall the mesa..
Cool .. I need to look these things up.
I take it you have use GPU for more than graphics?
Tell me is it like independant processors returning outout all the time? If it is written that way yes.
Care to chat a bit on your take on GPU co-processing? I'm all ears and eyes here.
Edit.. is the stuff for Tesla cards the same as for GTX550TI?
I have that .run
I don't see a how to but I will look up Mesa next.
A variety of device drivers allows Mesa to be used in many different environments ranging from software emulation to complete hardware acceleration for modern GPUs.
Do I need the MESA stuff? I don't plan on graphics programming only number crunching.
As you can tell I am a noob asking for advice.

I'll look for guidence.
But if you will John can you share a bit on using the GPU's for number crunching?
I admit I need only the basics and on that I also will be learning OpenMP I believe.
Fantastic things these moder day come computers are. Power of a 1970 main frame on the desk.
