Houdini 15 and second GPU as OpenCl device

Recommended Posts



using HOUDINI_OCL_DEVICENUMBER=1 in Houdini build wont work.

There are no problems with the 14 builds.

I really would like rule out any hardware/driver issues on my side and need a repro from you guys.


Ive already passed this on to the support during the open beta.

Edit: Just tested the Gtx 980 and 120. They can be selected and appear in Houdini, though they don't appear in 'hgpuinfo' they do appear in 'hgpuinfo'. Using the terminal and  export HOUDINI_OCL_DEVICENUMBER=1 & export HOUDINI_OCL_DEVICENUMBER=0


OsX 10.10.5, H15.0.277


Don't have the second card installed but it does bring up the question why we can't use OpenCL CPU as a second device to the OpenCL GPU.
