NVIDIA today announced NVIDIA CUDA 6, the latest version of the world's most pervasive parallel computing platform and programming model.

The CUDA 6 platform makes parallel programming easier than ever, enabling software developers to dramatically decrease the time and effort required to accelerate their scientific, engineering, enterprise and other applications with GPUs.

Unfortunately this is a desperation move as AMD's HuMA/HSA and APUs change the PC langscape for good and forever. CUDA is going to disappear in a few years as it's not the best solution.

...for good and forever...
What seems like "good and forever" at the moment can sometimes be lame and forgotten in no time. How you assume that NVIDIA is desperate with something that has been out now for 7 years is a bit creepy, sorry.

CUDA already showed that it's worth in supercomputing. AMD showed PR slides and won? :rolleyes:

So basically CUDA 6 is closer to hUMA/HSA then AMD only dreams of in PowerPoint slides and you call this a desperate move? Do you even know what hUMA/HSA stand for? If you're going to be a fanboy, be a better fanboy. Do some research before posting.

And while we're on the subject of stalking, Jorge my boy... the new AMD driver you so much praise in every other post, made the cards scream even louder then before. They made the cards be closer in performance, but still 10-15% variance, by simply making the fan spin faster...

Don't feed the trolls, this guy in particular almost always posts degrading comments on all Intel and nvidia related threads, and then dissapears without any facts to back his claims :shadedshu

BTW, CUDA has supported a unified pool of memory since release 4.0 if I remember correctly (and yes, it was released in 2011, way before HUMA was even mentioned by AMD), all ver. 6 does is remove the burden from the programmers to access this unified pool of memory when writing using CUDA, it also eliminates some of the overhead caused by writing from system memory to GPU memory, but not all of it.

As for CUDA going the way of the dodo, I think Amazon, the NCSA and Oak Ridge National Laboratory would beg to differ among many others...

nVidea Roadmap

1. Tesla=Cuda
2. Fermi=FP64
3. Kepler=Dinamic Parallelism
4. Maxwell=Unified virtual Memory
5. Volta=Stacked DRAM

This of Unified Virtual Memory does looks like hUMA or someone understands how works the Unified Virtual Memory:wtf:


And in other theme fermi was seeing that FP64 phase but in Kepler all was removed ten all that work whas a fail o what .. :D

Re:

On a non-trolling, mature, civil point of view, I have to agree with you. NVidia's moves for the past month has been nothing but desperation. GTX 780 Ti is proof of that, G-Sync is another example. After R9-290x toppled their former, over-priced king, the GTX Titan, NVidia, looks like they went into panic mode. All the consumers QQ about competition not being around, not driving prices down, smacked NVidia on it's butt because they didn't take what has been happening with AMD seriously. They scrapped Titan Ultra and Lite. Currently researching on Stacked Ram aka Volta. Something AMD has already done in the past and refined... Not feeling confident about AMD Mantle even though NVidia user can utilize it.

I have to agree that it seems like a copy of hUMA, but hUMA is for APUs. An example would be like the Intel Haswell and Haswell-e SoC. To say NVidia is copying it, would require NVidia to produce APU like AMD to make that statement more valid. Intel hasn't copied hUMA, and they produce APUs of their own, but don't call them APUs like AMD does. For the most part, they are the same thing... NVidia GPUs utilizing System Memory besides dedicated GPU Ram, doesn't seem innovative which is something NVidia has been synonymous for in a while. Now if the rumors were true. NVidia may eventually venture into the server market beside continuing it's push into the tablet/cellphone market, they will eventually have a copy-cat of hUMA. NVidia will be in competition with Intel again, besides AMD, in that market. This is another NVidia desperate move to produce more revenue returns...

Right now, G-Sync has Tegra4 chips on them. Mainly to help NVidia liquidate their leftover inventory since SHIELD and tablets containing those chips, aren't selling like hot-cakes. I suspect their 4thQ revenue reviews will start to shows signs of decline... I strongly feel that GTX 780 Ti or GTX 780 Titan, isn't selling highly either for 7% more Cuda Cores, marginally improved Core Frequencies, and D3D11.2 / Direcompute Full Support for another whooping $699.99 for a single unit. Especially when GTX Titan is still at $1000.00, and from other 3rd Party reviews, GTX 780 Ti in SLI has a tendency to drop frames on certain titles. Brain-dead NVidia fanboys won't admit it, but the kick to their privates after purchasing GTX Titan and 780--I bet it hurts. Pride + Stupidity = epic fails...

AMD right now reign supreme in multi-GPU solutions, and cost efficiency. CrossfireX through the PCIe Bus seem to have fixed AMD's issues with multi-GPU computing. Since AMD won the console wars with NVidia--sucks that NVidia doesn't produce APUs of their own, AMD in a way, has an ability to call the shots on up-coming console games for the next 10 years. Star Citizens, a highly anticipated MMO space-shooter, will be optimized for AMD GPUs with AMD Mantle supporting it... I suspect EQN will be optimized for AMD as well besides the idea that they will be using MS Havoc. Elder Scrolls Online might be another title that's optimized for AMD GPUs, if the rumors I heard about it are true...

This would make sense if CUDA wasn't portable to OpenCL, but then again, it is. If anything, CUDA = OpenCL + OpenCL "Extensions", just like how OpenGL Extensions is.

The only problem is that AMD cards work better with float4 which is not the best case in many GPGPU applications.

Many people don't realize how much CUDA is getting radicated into professional software, I suggest you to take a look at CUDA developer zone before crapping into threads with consequent humiliation by showing how much clueless you are.

CUDA can be used and shown, AMDs implementations are just on paper so I don't get how people can draw conclusions lol.
