    Phoronix: NVIDIA Pushes Out CUDA 9.1 With Compiler Optimizations, Volta Enhancements & More

    AMD isn't the only one busy with GPU software updates today but NVIDIA has issued CUDA 9.1 as their first feature update to the CUDA 9 compute platform...

    (the first one doesn't make sense, and the second one should be "multi-GPU")

      Yeah meant FFT problems, thanks.

        How smart, they have released CUDA 9.1 today because Fedora 25 is going to die after midnight, so nobody will blame them for releasing their Toolkit for an already dead platform, lol..

          Hardly comparable.

          One company does a lot on the open documentation and oss driver side,
          while the other only gets out vendor-locked proprietary software.

          Never regretted supporting AMD!

            Well. Intel using AMD (i/d)GPUs makes me highly suspicious...

            Are we safe? Are there real alternatives? Do we live in a nightmare disguised as a dream? Is our reality really real? :P

            Anyway, nothing is worse than using GPUs with proprietary drivers and market segmentation (NVIDIA, fuck you for not giving vGPU to consumers!).

              Whoops, sorry... glitch in the simulation. Didn't really happen.

                Oh, yes. Sure, I found a bug in the Virtual Machine

                  CUDA Toolkit 9.1 didn't like driver 384.111 and 387.26 doesn't like the latest 4.14 and 4.15 kernels. Ethminer also won't compile with CUDA on GCC 5 or greater and of course, 4.9 isn't in Ubuntu 17.10's repo. Heck, the download link in article doesn't even list a 17.10 package though the 17.04 one works just fine.

                  It's a real mess...
