We are planning to buy a Tesla K20 powered workstation. Since we are currently doing GPGPU on GeForce (OpenGL and shaders) and we want to use the Tesla as an extension to do additional OpenCL and/or CUDA we’d like to have a GeForce GTX 680 and a Tesla K20 in one machine. Last friday some guy from PNY called me and told me that it is not possible to have a Tesla and a GeForce working in one machine because of driver incompatibilities and that i would have to use a Quadro. On the other hand i have some people who see no problem in selling me an according Tesla+GF workstation… so is this PNY guy just doing marketing (i think i dont need a K5000 - for that price i can buy 3-4 GF680s)?
So my questions are:
(1) Is it possible to do Tesla+GF in one machine using windows, OpenCL/CUDA?
(2) Has anyone actually done this successfully or has anyone failed (and why)?
(3) Any restrictions on hardware components or CUDA/OpenCL usage?
I’d appreciate if someone could help me out with this since i don’t want to buy an expensive system for nothing…
