« on: May 28, 2020, 08:28:24 AM »
NVIDIA® Nsight™ Visual Studio Edition 2020.1 is now available with these features and improvements:

Compute Debugging
  • General
    • Supports CUDA Toolkit 11.0
    • Added support for the NVIDIA GA100 GPU.
    • Added ability to control breaking on and reporting CUDA API errors.
    • The Warp Watch view is now available in the Next-Gen Nsight Debugger.
    • The Resources view is now available in the Next-Gen Nsight Debugger.
    • CUDA Task Graph support has been added to the Next-Gen Nsight Debugger.
    Deprecations and Drops
    • Support for Pascal has been dropped from the Legacy Nsight Debugger, but is fully supported by the Next-Gen Nsight Debugger
    • OpenCL profiling support in NVIDIA Nsight Visual Studio Edition, deprecated as of NVIDIA Nsight VSE 2019.4, has been removed.
    • Windows 7 (and WinServer through 2012R2) support, deprecated since 2019.4 release, has been removed.
    • Support for sm_30 and sm_32 architectures have been dropped and sm_35, sm_37, sm_50 support has been deprecated as of the 2020.1 release. The default compilation target is now sm_52 in NVIDIA Nsight VSE build customizations.
    • Support for Visual Studio 2013 has been dropped. Current Visual Studio support includes versions 2015, 2017, and 2019.
    • NVIDIA Nsight Integration, a Visual Studio extension, has been introduced to allow next generation, standalone, Nsight tool integration into Visual Studio. In particular:
      • Integrated Graphics Debugging, deprecated since NVIDIA Nsight Visual Studio Edition 2019.2, has been removed and replaced by Nsight Graphics.
      • Integrated CUDA profiling, deprecated since NVIDIA Nsight Visual Studio Edition 2019.2, has been removed from the Performance Analysis tools and replaced by:
        • Nsight Compute for Volta and later family GPUs
        • nvprof and Visual Profiler for Pascal and early family GPUs (not participating tools for NVIDIA Nsight Integration)
      • Integrated Analysis Trace, deprecated since NVIDIA Nsight Visual Studio Edition 2019.2, has not been removed, but will be in an upcoming release of NVIDIA Nsight VSE. The replacement, stand-alone Nsight Systems tool is currently available and works with NVIDIA Nsight Integration for Visual Studio.
