NVIDIA Updates SDK; Unveils New Technology at GTC

At its annual GPU Technology Conference (GTC), NVIDIA updated its proprietary SDK (software development kit) to expand the Pascal architecture. The goal, the company states, is to make more of its software capabilities available to more developers. The update includes tools for deep learning, accelerated computing, self-driving cars, design visualization and autonomous machines. They are: cuDNN 5: A GPU-accelerated library of primitives for deep neural networks, now includes Pascal GPU support; acceleration of recurrent neural networks, which are used for video and other sequential data; and additional enhancements used in medical, oil & gas and other industries. CUDA 8: The latest version of the parallel computing platform, gives developers direct access to powerful new Pascal features such as unified memory and NVLink, NVIDIA states. Also included in this release is a new graph analytics…
