Cuda support for plugins

Post by usrfobiwan » Mon Oct 19, 2009 1:36 pm

Would it be a good idea to implement Nvidia Cuda into the effects plugins. This way you can for example add tweny tracks with individual Toraverbs and/or redaptor, fazortan and devestator plugins and offload the resources the the GPU.

And for those that don't use Nvidia chips???? maybe what you mean is to use the OpenCL standard?

Hi,

I don't think at this moment is doable, because plug-ins have mainly single threaded structure and CUDA technology and GPUs in general base on multi-cores (multi threaded algorithms). The latest NVidia line contains (if my memory serves) two GPUs with over 200 cores each.

Best regards,
Sebastian
