I’m new to CUDA and was just wondering - do most people use the same card for GPU computation as for their display, or do people usually have one card dedicated for the display and get another card for CUDA?
Right now I’m running into some display problems (artifacts even when only using terminal/firefox, chunks of my background wallpaper showing through my windows, bottom toolbar not rendering correctly) with my single card that is running the CUDA development drivers. It could very well be a voltage issue since the card is factory overclocked, but could it also be because of the CUDA driver?
I’m not sure if I should 1) replace the card, 2) buy another card and use this one exclusively for GPU computations, 3) try to underclock the card (which seems to be very difficult in Linux under the new fermi architecture)
Please let me know what your suggestions are ! Thanks
