Hello, I’m beginner with the C development and with CUDA. I’m a physics course student and I was trying to run some simulations that seens to be optimized for running on a Fermi hardware. I dont have such device and when I try to run it in mine 9600GT gpu I keep getting the following error:
Cuda driver error <CUDA_ERROR_NO_BINARY_FOR_GPU>
The autor of the code gave the advice to change the -arch sm argument when compilling because the default value was set to Fermi device arch.
I searched for a doc on Nvdia CUDA site explaining these arguments about archictheture but I did not find anything.
I’m worried that my future codes will not run on any CUDA-enabled device. Is CUDA cross-nvidia device or I will have to optimize my code only for the hardware I’m working on?
Someone can clear it to me? Maybe the error in the code is for another reason. I Hope CUDA is cross-architecture nvidia device, I want anybody with a nvidia gpu be able to run my simulations
