We are happy to announce the release of CUDA.NET version 3.0.0.
This release provides support for latest CUDA 3.0 API and few more updates that will make programming with CUDA from .NET easier and faster.
- Support for CUDA 3.0 API
- Added memset functions for CUDA class
- Supporting new graphics interoperability functions
- Improved generics support for memory operations
- Added CUDAContextSynchronizer class
Improved memory operations
We employ GCHandle class to be used with generic memory copies in CUDA class. This method allows to work with every data type (existing vectors or user defined) natively in .NET. The implication is that now you can copy existing custom arrays of structures/classes (user data-types) to device with memory copy functions.
This class was added to assist developers in multi-GPU and multi-threaded environments sharing the same device. It uses existing CUDA API to manipulate the context each thread is attached to and provides .NET means to synchronize between threads sharing the same device for different computations.
Find it under the Tools namespace, the documentation includes a description of how to use it.
We hope you will enjoy this release.
