Graphics card firm Nvidia has announced Nvidia Cuda, a new architecture for computing on the firm's graphics processing units (GPUs), as well as the industry’s first GPU C-compiler development environment. According to a statement released by Nvidia, GPU computing with Cuda offers a new approach to computing where hundreds of on-chip processor cores simultaneously communicate and cooperate to solve complex computing problems up to 100 times faster than traditional approaches. Cuda is currently available on the new GeForce 8800 graphics card and future Nvidia Quadro Professional Graphics solutions. In addition, this architecture is complemented the new Nvidia C-compiler for the GPU, which gives developers the necessary tools to solve problems in computation-intensive applications such as product design, data analysis, technical computing, and game physics. New features introduced by Cuda-enabled GPUs include Parallel Data Cache, which allows 128, 1.35GHz processor cores in newest generation Nvidia GPUs to cooperate with each other while performing intricate computations. Developers access these new features through a separate computing driver that communicates with DirectX and OpenGL, as well as the new GPU C-compiler. The Cuda software developers kit is currently available to developers and researchers through the Nvidia registered developer program, information on which can be found on the official Nvidia website.
