CUDAVector

CUDAVector[data]

yields a vector of data which resides on a CUDA enabled GPU.

CUDAVector[data,type]

yields a vector of the specified type.

Details and Options

  • The CUDALink application must be loaded using Needs["CUDALink`"].
  • The resources used by a CUDAVector are automatically reclaimed from the GPU when they are no longer used.
  • The data in a CUDAVector can be retrieved by Normal.
  • A number of functions accept and return CUDAVector objects allowing operations to work with data that stays on the GPU.
  • Possible types for CUDAVector are:
  • IntegerRealComplex
    "Integer32""Real32""ComplexReal32"
    "Integer64""Real64""ComplexReal64"
