从这篇文章介绍了什么是CUDA

CUDA® is a parallel computing platform and programming model invented by NVIDIA. It enables dramatic increases in computing performance by harnessing the power of the graphics processing unit (GPU).

CUDANVIDIA提供的一个并行计算平台和模型,可以让程序更好地利用GPU。下面这段话则很好地解释了什么是“GPU computing”:

Using high-level languages, GPU-accelerated applications run the sequential part of their workload on the CPU – which is optimized for single-threaded performance – while accelerating parallel processing on the GPU. This is called “GPU computing.”

CUDA Zone展示了CUDA提供的产品,NVML也包含在其中。
