“This book is required reading for anyone working with accelerator-based computing systems.”

–From the Foreword by Jack Dongarra, University of Tennessee and Oak Ridge National Laboratory

CUDA is a computing architecture designed to facilitate the development of parallel programs. In conjunction with a comprehensive software platform, the CUDA Architecture enables programmers to draw on the immense power of graphics processing units (GPUs) when building high-performance applications. GPUs, of course, have long been available for demanding graphics and game applications. CUDA now brings this valuable resource to programmers working on applications in other domains, including science, engineering, and finance. No knowledge of graphics programming is required–just the ability to program in a modestly extended version of C.


CUDA by Example, written by two senior members of the CUDA software platform team, shows programmers how to employ this new technology. The authors introduce each area of CUDA development through working examples. After a concise introduction to the CUDA platform and architecture, as well as a quick-start guide to CUDA C, the book details the techniques and trade-offs associated with each key CUDA feature. You’ll discover when to use each CUDA C extension and how to write CUDA software that delivers truly outstanding performance.


Major topics covered include

  • Parallel programming
  • Thread cooperation
  • Constant memory and events
  • Texture memory
  • Graphics interoperability
  • Atomics
  • Streams
  • CUDA C on multiple GPUs
  • Advanced atomics
  • Additional CUDA resources

All the CUDA software tools you’ll need are freely available for download from NVIDIA.




引言中的Jack Dongarra, University of Tennessee和Oak Ridge National Laboratory寫道:"這本書是任何使用加速器計算系統的人必讀的書籍。"


《CUDA by Example》是由CUDA軟件平台團隊的兩位資深成員撰寫的,向程序員展示如何使用這項新技術。作者通過實例介紹了CUDA開發的每個領域。在簡明介紹CUDA平台和架構以及CUDA C的快速入門指南之後,本書詳細介紹了每個關鍵CUDA功能的技術和權衡。您將了解何時使用每個CUDA C擴展以及如何編寫能夠提供真正出色性能的CUDA軟件。
