CUDA Driver for Linux on POWER Processor?

The driver download page says that I can download a CUDA driver for 64-bit Linux, however, it doesn’t specifically say if it is only x64-based (Intel or AMD) Linux. Does anyone know if there are drivers available for RHEL installed on an IBM server with POWER processors? These processors are big endian vs the x64-based processors which are little endian. I assume there are not, but I figured I would ask.


The Linux CUDA drivers and software are IA32 or x86_64/EMT64 only. I am also pretty certain NVIDIA have never made a CUDA compatible GPU that would work with Power 5 or Power 6 architecture anyway.

If your site is heavily invested in IBM Power servers and you need more HPC compute power, you might want to investigate IBM or third party Cell based accelerators.
