      Sweet! CUDA 9 seems to be a perfect fit for Debian 9 as it's shipping with both GCC 6.3 and Clang 3.9. Too bad that Debian is not officially supported.. and setting up a different CUDA version from the one in the repo (8.0.44) is a real pain.

          Well yeah it's been in beta for a while and there's only partial support:

            Hopefully they will fix the regressions they introduced with the release of version 8.

              Wow, I'm impressed they support it at all. I long suspected they had a secret OpenCL implementation they gave to big customers (e.g. automotive) who insisted on it. I guess that could still be true of their Tegra SoCs, which don't advertise any support for OpenCL.

              I guess we should all pile in with requests for better compliance.

                God guess. I can't imagine big guns would be willing to put up with the criplleware software stack that NVIDIA's OpenCL​ is. What makes me still wonder how many do still stick to OpenCL is that all the libraries NVIDIA develops are CUDA only (and I doubt they have the resources to develop them secretly in OpenCL too).
