I have just started working on my thesis, which includes adjusting an existing cfd code to run on a gpu.
Therefore I got new hardware, NVidia GeForce GTX 470.
Can someone please give me a few hints, where I can find specs of the gpu which include the number of SMs etc, I just found the number of Cuda cores in the specs pdf from nvidia.
What is the best way of starting, I mean how to define what grid block and warp sizes should I use? And is it difficult to change the cuda code for other hardware types, I will get a tesla card in about 6 month time.
sorry for the maybe ridiculous question, but I am completely new to cuda and I don t want to mess it up right from the beginning.
thanks in advance
