NVIDIA announced availability of the production release of NVIDIA CUDA 5.5, the latest version of its parallel computing platform and programming model. The model now supports ARM platforms.
In addition to native support for ARM platforms, CUDA 5.5 delivers a number of new advanced performance and productivity features, including enhanced Hyper-Q support across multiple MPI processes on all Linux systems; MPI workload prioritization; and new guided performance analysis.
Fast cross-compile on x86 reduces development time for large applications by enabling developers to compile ARM code on fast x86 processors, and transfer the compiled application to ARM.
