OpenCLLink is designed to work automatically after the Wolfram System is installed with no special configuration. You can test this by using the OpenCLQ function.
This checks if OpenCLLink is supported. If it returns True, as shown below, then OpenCLLink will work.
- Unsupported operating system—OpenCLLink is not supported on SUN's Solaris or versions of Apple's Mac OS X earlier than 10.6.
- Unsupported hardware—OpenCLLink only works on OpenCL-capable graphics cards and/or CPUs with SSE3 support. You can find out if your graphics card is supported on the NVIDIA CUDA website or the AMD/ATI OpenCL website.
- Incompatible graphics driver—A recent NVIDIA or ATI driver is needed for OpenCLLink to operate properly. Drivers for your operating system are available from the NVIDIA driver download website or the AMD/ATI driver download website.
- Wrong ATI Driver—Starting with version 10.10, ATI hardware has two versions of the driver, one supporting OpenCL and one not. The AMD Catalyst™ Accelerated Parallel Processing (APP) Technology Edition of the driver is needed for OpenCL to function. The driver is only supported on certain cards and can be downloaded from the AMD/ATI Driver website.
- Missing OpenCL ATI Stream SDK—For ATI hardware not supported by the APP driver, or if planning on using the CPU, the AMD/ATI Stream SDK is needed. The Stream SDK can be downloaded from the AMD/ATI OpenCL website.
In general, if CUDALink works then OpenCLLink should work. "CUDALink Setup" tells you how to test CUDALink and make it operational; this should be sufficient to resolve problems with OpenCLLink.
An OpenCL-capable video card (see next section) is required to use OpenCLLink. The AMD Catalyst™ driver is required as well. Some video cards have the AMD Catalyst™ Accelerated Parallel Processing (APP) driver; in those cases, the driver is sufficient. If the APP driver is not supported, then the ATI Stream SDK is required to use OpenCLLink.

The ATI OpenCL implementation also registers x86 CPUs with SEE 2.x or later support as OpenCL devices. The CPUs can be used with OpenCLLink by specifying the appropriate "Device" and "Platform" options.
On Mac OS X, OpenCLQ checks if OS X 10.6 (Snow Leopard) is installed. It would fail if not detected, since previous versions are not supported. On NVIDIA hardware, OpenCLQ follows the same methods of detection as CUDAQ in CUDALink; refer to "CUDALink Setup" for more information.
