Parallel Nsight and the CUDA Toolkit -- Features Overview (Sept 2010)
In September, we added major new performance improvements and GPU development capabilities to our Parallel Nsight software and CUDA Toolkit. These enhancements give developers more flexibility and power to easily create high-performance GPU-accelerated applications.
The big news for Parallel Nsight 1.5 is support for Microsoft Visual Studio 2010. Version 1.5 also includes support for Tesla Compute Cluster (TCC) debugging, the updated CUDA Toolkit, full support for NVIDIA's recently announced, high-performance Fermi GPU architecture, and other advanced debugging and analysis capabilities. In addition to delivering up to 300 percent faster FFT and BLAS performance vs. the previous release, the new CUDA Toolkit 3.2 release includes new libraries for sparse matrix multiplication, random number generation, H.264 encode/decode, and new cluster management features.
