GPU Family

Hi All,

Is there any way to detect if the graphics adapter is of the Workstation or Desktop product line for both ATI and NVidia manufacturers?



The GL doesn’t have a flag to determine the hardware class. However, since both AMD and NVIDIA state quite clearly which model or at least the series of the GPU the GL context is bound to, you can simply search the string returned by querying GL_RENDERER and GL_VENDOR for something that gives you a clue.

Ok, thanks.
