What NVIDIA Graphics Cards Support Cuda?

Postby Apoptosis » Tue Jun 10, 2008 4:42 pm

With NVIDIA Cuda getting more attention these days many are wondering what graphics cards support it. This is a great question! Before we get to the graphics cards make sure you understand what CUDA is!

What is NVIDIA CUDA?

NVIDIA CUDA technology is a fundamentally new computing architecture that enables the GPU to solve complex computational problems in consumer, business, and technical applications. CUDA (Compute Unified Device Architecture) technology gives computationally intensive applications access to the tremendous processing power of NVIDIA graphics processing units (GPUs) through a revolutionary new programming interface. Providing orders of magnitude more performance than current CPUs and simplifying software development by extending the standard C language, CUDA technology enables developers to create innovative solutions for data-intensive problems. For advanced research and language development, CUDA includes a low level assembly language layer and driver interface.

Now that you have a basic understanding on what CUDA is let's see what video cards work with it. This will also be a great thread to show others as many will want to run F@H on NVIDIA graphics cards, but will be unsure if they have a supporting card!

basically any 8 series and up shoudl support Cuda. Now if only software company can taking the advantage of the GPU processor and start wrting apps for it.

I don't see that happening until we have a standard GPU language :?

I thought CUDA was going to be a derivative of C...which makes me wonder, why can't F@H just be moved entirely to the GPU rather than needing a CPU core as well? If it's at all like C then why can't the GPU handle all of the calls and leave the CPU alone? Just a thought...
