CUDA and CUDA Toolkit

CUDA is a parallel computing platform and programming mode, which are developed by NVIDIA. This is implemented by graphics processing units. CUDA allows developers to access the virtual instruction set and memory of parallel computational elements in CUDA GPUs. Since the power of GPUs is allocated to general purpose processing, this provides more computational power to support its CPU.

CUDA Toolkit is an integrated development environment, which includes GPU compiler, libraries, drivers, and tools. This integrated development environment manages debug, optimization, and execution of an application.

CUDA is mainly based upon C/C++. For farther details of CUDA, please visit the URL shown below.

CUDA capable GPUs

Most of GPU boards, which are NVIDIA produces such asTesla, Quadro, and GeForce, support CUDA. Recently, NVIDIA has introduced Jetson TK1, an ARM SOC board, which is equipped with Tegra K1. For more up-dated information, please visit the URL below.
