I am an absolute beginner with CUDA and want to clear out some of confusions and correct my misconceptions !! Straight to the point ,
I originally thought CUDA was meant for image processing parallelism only , which on closer study is absolutely wrong, what I make out is it can actually act as parallel processor , am I right here ? Also are there special image processing functions that it can perform faster?
Secondly why is there an emphasis on microsoft visual studio w.r.t CUDA ? Cant I compile CUDA programs with say Dev C++ ? Here theres a lot of confusion for me which i will ask once i clear these doubts outta my mind !!
And any place get started from the 0th node ? ? :)
