NVIDIA unveils CUDA
November 21, 2006
NVIDIA has unveiled NVIDIA CUDA technology, a new architecture for computing on NVIDIA graphics processing units (GPUs) and the industry’s first C-compiler development environment for the GPU.
GPU computing with CUDA is a new approach to computing where hundreds of on-chip processor cores simultaneously communicate and cooperate to solve complex computing problems up to 100 times faster than traditional approaches.
The new NVIDIA C-compiler for the GPU gives developers the tools needed to solve new problems in computation-intensive applications.
CUDA is available now on the new GeForce 8800 graphics card, and will become available on future NVIDIA Quadro Professional Graphics solutions.
