Cublas static on windows

Hello nVIDIA,
Could you provide static version of the core lib cuBLAS on Windows pls? As in the case of cudart.

CUDA 11.8 comes with a huge cublasLt64_11.dll (around 530Mo!!) and cublas64_11.dll depends on it.

I am using only dgemm from cublas and I do not want to carry such a big dll with my application just for one function.

related (old) topics with no real answer from you:

@Guix at this time we have no plans to release static libraries for Windows.

I also need the static cublas library for Windows.

What is the logic that Nvidia provides the static cublas builds for Linux, but not and for Windows? Like cudart_static.lib it would simplify linkage with different CUDA toolkits.
