CUDASparseMatrix

CUDASparseMatrix[sparse,type]

yields a sparse matrix of given type which resides on a CUDA enabled GPU.

Details and Options

  • The CUDALink application must be loaded using Needs["CUDALink`"].
  • The resources used by a CUDASparseMatrix are automatically reclaimed from the GPU when they are no longer used.
  • The data in a CUDASparseMatrix can be retrieved by Normal.
  • A number of functions accept and return CUDASparseMatrix objects allowing operations to work with data that stays on the GPU.
  • Possible types for CUDASparseMatrix are:
  • RealComplex
    "Real32""ComplexReal32"
    "Real64""ComplexReal64"
