SANTA CLARA, Calif., Aug. 2 -- NVIDIA today announced availability of the production release of NVIDIA CUDA 5.5, the latest version of the world’s most pervasive parallel computing platform and programming model.
Available today as a free download at https://developer.nvidia.com/cuda-downloads, the CUDA 5.5 programming model brings the power of GPU-accelerated computing for the first time to ARM platforms, the world’s fastest-growing processor ecosystem – approximately 10 times larger than the x86 CPU-based market.
CUDA 5.5 provides programmers with a robust, easy-to-use platform to develop advanced science, engineering, mobile and high performance computing (HPC) applications on ARM and x86 CPU-based systems.
In addition to native support for ARM platforms, CUDA 5.5 delivers a number of new advanced performance and productivity features, including:
CUDA 5.5 also offers a full suite of programming tools, GPU-accelerated math libraries and documentation for both x86- and ARM-based platforms. For more information visit the CUDA Toolkit website. To download the CUDA 5.5 toolkit, visit the CUDA downloads website.
CUDA is a parallel computing platform and programming model developed by NVIDIA. It enables dramatic increases in computing performance by harnessing the power of GPUs. With more than 1.8 million downloads, supporting more than 200 leading engineering, scientific and commercial applications, the CUDA programming model is taught in over 640 universities worldwide and is the most popular way for developers to take advantage of GPU-accelerated computing.
Since 1993, NVIDIA has pioneered the art and science of visual computing. The company’s technologies are transforming a world of displays into a world of interactive discovery — for everyone from gamers to scientists, and consumers to enterprise customers.
