 CUDA Toolkit 8 RC Now Available


  New in CUDA 8
 Pascal Architecture Support
  • Out of box performance improvements on Tesla P100, supports GeForce GTX 1080
  • Simplify programming using Unified memory on Pascal including support for large datasets, concurrent data access and atomics*
  • Optimize Unified Memory performance using new data migration APIs*
  • Faster Deep Learning using optimized cuBLAS routines for native FP16 computation
Developer Tools
  • Quickly identify latent system-level bottlenecks using the new critical path analysis feature
  • Improve productivity with up to 2x faster NVCC compilation speed
  • Tune OpenACC applications and overall host code using new profiling extensions
Libraries
  • Accelerate graph analytics algorithms with nvGRAPH
  • New cuBLAS matrix multiply optimizations for matrices with sizes smaller than 512 and for batched operation
