With the GeForce GTX 1080 now shipping, NVIDIA has made public the release candidate for CUDA 8.

CUDA 8 details were revealed at last month's GTC conference while the RC is shipping in time for new Pascal GPU owners to enjoy. CUDA 8 brings support for the Tesla P100 / GeForce GTX 1080 with fully benefiting from the Pascal architecture, new developer tools, nvGRAPH for graph analytics, and new cuBLAS matrix multiply optimizations. NVIDIA's NVCC CUDA compiler is also said to be two times faster with CUDA 8.

More details on the CUDA 8 features can be found via the NVIDIA Parallel For All blog back during GDC. The CUDA 8 release candidate can be downloaded from developer.nvidia.com. CUDA 8.0 is expected to be officially released in August.
