how to get an overview of threads per task? March 27, 2019, 12:57 p.m.

I`m also interested into controling GPUs, or openCL devices assignent per task in my case. For example i have 2 GPU and i`m wedging some openCL sims(pyro,flip etc) and want each task to run on different openCL device…

Using CPU Cores Jan. 1, 2019, 4:03 p.m.

Houdini is using 2990WX just fine, i have that processor too, use it on both Win10 and Ubuntu Linux. It all depends on nodes you are looking at / using. Not everything can run parallel on all cores, no matter what processor you use. That`s just the nature of programming and processing of data. For example most VDB/volume nodes can utilise all your cores. So can well choosen/writen vex code, or most of the solvers(pyro/flip etc). But if you for example unpack packed alembic that that is single threaded there is nothing you can do.
Just hold on, spend more time in houdini and computer graphics in general, and you`ll understand..

"Could not create OpenCL device" Houdini Console notification Nov. 13, 2018, 1:31 p.m.

Same issue here on H17, after installing the latest NVIDIA driver. H16.5 stayed unaffected. Rolling back the nvidia driver did not solved the issue.
