CUDA 11.0 brings support for NVIDIA Ampere GPUs, third-generator Tensor Cores additions, various performance optimizations, official support for Ubuntu 20.04 LTS, Arm server platform support for NVIDIA T4 GPUs, the nvJPEG encoder now supports compressed bitstream on the GPU memory, improved batch TRSM performance for cuBLAS, new cuSPARSE APIs, BF16 input/output data type support in cuFFT, and a variety of other improvements.
