I want to take advantage of compute data compression feature which is new on Ampere A100. But when I try the cuda sample code, I get same performance w/wo compression. Not sure what happens, is the compute data compression capability not exposed yet?
GPU Device 0: “Ampere” with compute capability 8.0
Generic memory compression support is available

Running saxpy with 216 blocks x 1024 threads = 0.383 ms 1.313 TB/s
