developer.nvidia.com. This beta release of CUDA contains a C-compiler
for the GPU and an SDK with examples to get you started coding to the
GPU Computing with CUDA is a new approach to computing
where hundreds of on-chip processors simultaneously communicate and
cooperate to solve complex computing problems. Applications that
require mathematically intensive computing on large amounts of data are
ideal targets for GPU Computing.
NVIDIA’s CUDA technology
is available in GeForce® 8800 graphics products and future NVIDIA
Quadro® Professional Graphics solutions based on 8-series GPUs.
Developers are invited to download the beta version of the CUDA
Software Developers Kit (SDK) and C compiler for Windows XP and Linux
