Picture having two 7990 cards for a total of four devices. Using "-fork=4" with an OpenCL format would pick device 0 for the mother process, device 1 for first child and so on. Only very fast formats [where set_key() is a bottleneck] would benefit. What would be the speed of slower+faster device combination? 2*slower? For homogenous system it is good solution anyway.
