NVIDIA Announces New Versions of Parallel Nsight and CUDA Developer Tools

By DE Editors

NVIDIA has announced new versions of two of its developer tools: Parallel Nsight and the CUDA Toolkit

Parallel Nsight enables creation of GPU-accelerated applications for a range of desktop and supercomputing platforms.  Version 1.5 includes support for Microsoft Visual Studio 2010, Tesla Compute Cluster (TCC) debugging, the updated CUDA Toolkit version 3.2, and support for NVIDIA’s Fermi GPU architecture. 

The new CUDA Toolkit 3.2 release includes two new math libraries, performance improvements and support for the new 6GB Tesla and Quadro products.

Parallel Nsight 1.5 Standard edition is available as a free. In addition, a release candidate of the Professional edition, which includes all Standard edition features plus additional capabilities, including the System Analysis functionality, will also be available. 

The CUDA Toolkit includes tools, libraries and documentation developers need to build CUDA C/C++ applications.  In addition to delivering up to 300% faster FFT and BLAS performance compared with 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.
