Intel Core 2 Quad Q9300 supports OpenCL?


I read that OpenCL can run into Core 2 Duo processors and I tried and figured out the performance is superb compairing without it. I work with financial market and do automatized robots (expert advisors) for my task it's good to have OpenCL. If I install the older version I have here { opencl_runtime_18.1_x64_setup } or a newer one it can crash my CPU or it's safe to use this with my Q9300 2.5 Ghz 6 MB? Yes, it's old, but gold, very powerfull indeed, I am very happy with my Lga 775, for this reason I didn't change yet.

Thank you Deivid A. for your kindness bud. I tried by myself and yes, it def runs perfectly OpenCL using the 18.1 version. I also tried this before with a Core 2 Duo for desktop { E8500 }. Thank you so much!
