Question on GPU processing
Since I am using an old laptop with an NVIDIA GT520M graphics, it only
has 48 Cuda cores which is close to nothing in terms of nowadays graphic cards.
Once APP uses GPU processing, would I notice the effect of speed improvement
with this small amount of Cuda cores?
Just for interest!!
Thanks for any insight ( and hopefully some expected timeframe for the future
release with GPU processing implemented )
Well, I have no idea to be honest. 🙂 I'm not sure how much more efficient the GPU is to make up for the fact yours is a lot less powerful to more modern ones. That will be something to just test I think, I'm assuming you can then still select not to use a gpu whenever it's supported (I have no actual view on the feature path).
I know it is hard to foresee! Is there some timeframe for the release of APP
with GPU processing implemented?
I don't dare to give a date-range, might still be a year as it's a big operation but I really have no good idea. Sorry.
Ah that's a pitty, I'm busy configuring a new desktop workstation
with a lot of cores and cudas in order to get the most out of
APP and Pixinsight.
So very likely it might take some other year to get implemented?
Hope to see that version making processing much faster!
It might, but I really don't have a clue on this in particular. Sometimes Mabula is finished with a large development cycle and suddenly implements something I thought would take a while still. 🙂 But it doesn't hurt getting a good gfx card, we plan to support both NVidia and AMD.
