GTC16: NVIDIA Updates SDK; Expands Support for Deep Learning

As always, there’s a flood of news coming out of NVIDIA’s annual GPU Technology Conference, being held this week in San Jose. In addition to the anticipated Pascal debut, which we’ll be reporting on later today, CEO Jen-Hsun Huang revealed an expansive update to NVIDIA’s SDK. Enhanced deep learning capabilities and support for the just announced Tesla P100 GPU are among the new features. CUDA, of course, is the centerpiece. NVIDIA says more than a million developers have now downloaded the CUDA Toolkit and that there are more than 400 GPU-accelerated applications benefiting from CUDA software libraries. Here’s a quick tour of seven software updates in the SDK that NVIDIA says matter most: 1) Deep Learning – cuDNN 5, NVIDIA’s GPU-accelerated library of primitives for deep neural networks, now includes Pascal GPU support; acceleration of…
