NVIDIA announced the availability of the NVIDIA CUDA 5 Release Candidate, the latest version of its parallel computing platform and programming model.
Publicly available as a free download from the NVIDIA Developer Zone website, the CUDA 5 Release Candidate provides a platform for developers to evaluate new features and capabilities before the CUDA 5 Production Release later this year, the company says.
The platform includes GPU object linking, which allows developers to create libraries that run entirely on the GPU, and NVIDIA Nsight Eclipse Edition, an integrated development environment (IDE) for developing GPU-accelerated applications on Linux- and Mac OS-based systems. CUDA 5 also includes a new integrated documentation system and all-in-one installers.
