NVIDIA CUDA



Updated on June 9, 2011: GTX 500 and CUDA 4.0 compute capabilities features.


The Compute Capability describes the features supported by a CUDA hardware. First CUDA capable hardware like the GeForce 8800 GTX have a compute capability (CC) of 1.0 and recent GeForce like the GTX 480 have a CC of 2.0. Knowing the CC can be useful for understanting why a CUDA based demo can’t start on your system.

Here is a comparative table that will help you to know the CC of your NVIDIA graphics card:
