I found the Julia Set exercise from the CUDA by Example book and was working on it today.
I have a Titan X installed on my linux system, exclusively for GPU processing and my monitor is connected to an intel integrated graphics card. The Julia Set code seems to want to call the OpenGL library (#include <GL/glut.h>), but I know that when I install CUDA on my graphics card I should NOT choose the “install OpenGL” option (I’d go back to the inferal login-loop otherwise).
I guess I’m a bit confused here, since I wouldn’t know what to do if I want to run the Julia Set code. What is the workaround? To plug in my monitor to my Titan X and also use it for rendering and install OpenGL? Will any parallel processing capabilities be reduced if I do this?
As far as I know (I could be wrong?) a graphics card can be used for GPU parallel processing or for rendering (plugged into monitor) but not for both at the same time.
