This is the placeholder thread for the CUDA version of milkyway. I'll post more here as code is available. Please use this thread for any questions in the mean time.

Also, if anyone can suggest a good compiler to use for the windows application (that isn't visual studio) I'd appreciate it.

I'm going to say yes... as I have experience with other projects so it's safe to assume that. Especially since ATI cards are already "supported" with Milkyway...

Yes, CUDA is a Nvidia technology that, while I believe the specs are available, are heavily biased towards Nvidia's GPU structure. Personally, I'd be quite interested in the OpenCL version coming, as while that isn't geared to a specific manufacturer and therefore may sacrifice some speed, it is truly open and can probably be implemented on many GPUs. Larrabee oughta be interesting later this year with OpenCL... ;-)

Hi,
I am happy to hear, that ATI GPU's are supported (Radeon 3800 Series). How can i see, that the applicvation is using that? Do i have to activate something?

Kind regards,

Alexander

You have to also run zslip.com to make it work properly....

But it might be a good idea to wait for the new GPU variant of the project to go up.

Would have to be Ati. A developement version of Cuda is supposed to be released when the Gpu portion of MW goes live.
Doesn't expecting the unexpected make the unexpected the expected?
If it makes sense, DON'T do it.

i have a laptop with a nvidia quadro NVS 135M gpu (128MB ram)
seti need 256MB

Aw thats too bad fer me I've got a 9500GT+ (1GB) maybe it will reach minimum requirements? A 260GT costs about $300 here. I'll get one in my next computer, would have to put a new power supply in this one if I put a 260 in it.

Yep. Only the GT200 based cards can do double precision calculations. So that means the GTX 260 or higher (275, 280, 285, 295, etc). The GTS 250 and other cards similar to that are just rebranded 9xxx series cards, so they don't have the necessary hardware.
