Consumer and Enterprise GPUs


For the purpose of licensing Alea GPU classifies GPUs either as consumer or enterprise GPUs:

Consumer GPU: GeForce, Quadro, NVS

Enterprise GPU: Telsa, Grid, Mobile, e.g. Tegra

Community Edition


The Alea GPU Community Edition is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 International License.

Creative Commons License

This license allows distribution, remix, tweaking, and building upon Alea GPU, even commercially, as long as QuantAlea is credited for the original creation.

The Community Edition supports a single consumer GPU. It must be detectable as the default GPU, which is the most powerful consumer GPU on that machine. This gives additional flexibility in case the system contains a weak NVIDIA graphics card for display purpose.

Commercial Edition


The Alea GPU Commercial Edition is required for multiple consumer GPUs or enterprise GPUs. Every system using his edition has to have a license installed. The license installation process is explained here.
