I’m continuing to do some work with CUDA and some math algorithms. I’ve noticed that when I run the bandwidth test it uses a full cpu on this machine for the entire duration of the test.
Machine is a Pentium D 940 (3.2Ghz), with DDR667 (3 3 3 12) timing.
8800 Ultra in an x8 slot
Is this expected? Does this also say that if I had more cpu available I might get higher results?
(I average 1.4GB/s max on htod and 1.5GB/x max on dtoh)
