Adding a AMD GPU for computing along side a NVIDIA GPU

In my current workstation I want to install a HD-7770-GE along side a Quadro FX580.

The Quadro will continue to server the monitor while I will be using the Radeon for non graphical computing.


1) Is that possible?


2) If yes what are the recommended step during the installation of the Radeon GPU and the AMD sdk 2.8?

Device Manager show that  NVIDIA OpenCL drivers are already installed.

I do not need any fancy stuff from the graphical card and I am find if I loose the ability to run video or complex graphic. 

(mostly use vim for programming...)


Dell T7500

Dual Intel X5560 (2.8 GHz) 6 GB DDR3

Windows Server R2 Enterprise.

    Hi ,

    There is a similar thread already: http://devgurus.amd.com/message/1286801#1286801


    Although that thread is about setting up NVIDIA (display) + AMD(compute) on ubuntu.

    I am still working on the linux setup, but i had recently created a setup on windows. I had just installed AMD Graphics driver, AMD APP SDK and NVIDIA driver. I could use the AMD GPU in this setup without any problems. I will update the system details tomorrow, as it is a local holiday here and I am out of office
