How are u enjoying ur programming sessions man ?
I got a mail that Nsight has been renamed to Nsight Visual Developer edition,got any more info on that?
i almost fell asleep just once. Strong black organic tea worked for the rest of the sessions.
-- it is much better than i thought. Either my understanding of GPU compute has improved over the past 3 years since the 2009 GTC ....
. . . or i am numb (i like to think it is that i am improving instead of getting better at it)
i got the press release on Nsight
AND I QUOTE>>>
NVIDIA today introduced NVIDIA® Nsight™, Eclipse Edition, the world’s first integrated development environment (IDE) for developing GPU accelerated applications on Linux- and Mac OS-based systems.
NVIDIA Nsight provides powerful debugging and profiling tools that enable high performance computing (HPC) and graphics developers to fully optimize the performance of CPUs and GPUs.
New Nsight, Eclipse Edition for Linux, Mac OS
The new Nsight, Eclipse Edition, enables CUDA® programmers to easily develop, debug and optimize the performance of GPU-accelerated applications within a familiar, highly productive IDE based on the open source Eclipse framework (http://www.eclipse.org
). Key features include:
Automatic code refactoring – Helps convert slow sequential CPU loops into parallel GPU kernels
Integrated expert analysis system – Provides automated performance analysis and step-by-step guidance to address application performance bottlenecks
High-productivity development environment – Syntax highlighting and auto-completion for both CPU and GPU code helps developers program more efficiently
Integrated code samples, online documentation – Makes it easy for developers to quickly get started
“NVIDIA Nsight is the ultimate development platform for heterogeneous computing,” said Ian Buck,
NVIDIA Unveils Nsight Development Platform for Linux, Mac and Windows Page 2
general manager of GPU computing software at NVIDIA. “Whether you’re a graphics or HPC developer, Nsight makes it easy to develop parallel code for GPUs and CPUs using your preferred IDE.”
NVIDIA Nsight Visual Studio Edition for Windows
NVIDIA also announced an updated version of NVIDIA Nsight, Visual Studio Edition for Microsoft Windows developers. Nsight, Visual Studio Edition (formerly known as NVIDIA Parallel Nsight) adds a number of new enhancements and updated features designed to make parallel programming on GPU-based Windows systems faster and easier than ever.
Key among these features is local single GPU debugging, which enables CUDA developers to debug their CUDA C/C++ code natively on the hardware with any system equipped with any CUDA 1.1 or higher capable GPU. Other features include performance improvements to the frame profiler and debugger, and support for DirectX 9 frame debugging, frame profiling and analysis.
“Previously, debugging required dedicated systems that were often expensive and time consuming to configure,” said Tony Tamasi, senior vice president of content and technology at NVIDIA. “Now, any system with an NVIDIA GPU that supports debugging can be used without any additional cost or system upgrades, resulting in significant cost and time savings.”
Developers can sign up to receive a free preview of NVIDIA Nsight, Eclipse Edition or Nsight, Visual Studio Edition by joining the NVIDIA GPU Computing Registered Developer program at http://www.nvidia.com/paralleldeveloper
