Viliam, your understanding is correct.
Gpuowl is developed on Linux, AMD gpus, ROCm driver, and AMD's OpenCL. Mihai owned an NVIDIA card briefly and got rid of it. We are fortunate that gpuowl works also on Windows and on some NVIDIA gpus and even on some Intel igps and AMD IGPUs. There are some NVIDIA gpus that are not compatible with a new enough driver to support a high enough version of OpenCL so can't run gpuowl.
