How to check if your GPU supports OpenCL in Windows 10

- by

I have an application that relies OpenCL drivers. I wanted to see if my GPU would support it to speed up the calculation, but I had no idea where to begin looking. I found some instructions for Windows 7 that are still useful even under Windows 10 and perhaps beyond. Here’s what worked for me:

  • open Device Manager (via search, it’s the least painful way to find it)
  • under Display Adapters, select your GPU
  • right-click on it and choose Properties
  • under Driver, choose Driver Details (and wait a moment)
  • in the next window, scroll down and see if OpenCL.dll is installed
  • select the file to see details about your OpenCL version

Another mystery has been solved!
