OS X CUDA drivers - CUDA 4.1.28 (26.01.) + CUDA-Z tool

5 posts in this topic

CUDA is gpu computing for Geforce (Nvidia) only and available for OS X, Linux + Win.

Toast 11 (mac) for example uses CUDA(Mac) to speedup h.264 encoding.

For Enduser usage you only need the CUDA driver, not the SDK.

Dev driver is named: devdriver_4.1.21_macos.dmg (last was 4.0.50)


To check CUDA on OS X you can use CUDA-Z tool (DL at the end) which shows informations about the CUDA gpu and has small CUDA (VRAM + PCI Transfer speed) benchmark.

Using this driver. Is it possible to allow notebooks with CUDA Powered GPUs like -> NVIDIA GeForce GT 550M, to work with native full speed and full feature, as we would have on Windows 7 for example ( Original supplied OS ) ?

Yes, if you have software (OS X) that uses CUDA. No, if you use software which does not use CUDA.

CUDA is independed from OpenGL - doesnt give more OpenGL power.
