i am currently wondering why it takes 1.5 to 3 sec to run this CUT_DEVICE_INIT “command”. is there a faster why to do this? How long should it take, normally. Got a FX5600 here

That’s way longer than it takes on my machine. There’s got to be something wrong. (Wish I could help more.)

Actually i also noticed that cublasInit() takes much time : on my box this takes 1.4s. Provided those are very recents processors, (Intel® Xeon® CPU E5410 @ 2.33GHz) this may be equivalent to the 2 or 3s previously reported.

I’m running this box on a debian, the cuda driver is still 1.1 (did not test 2.0 yet) and the nvidia driver has version169.09. The entire experiment is done on a 64bits system. Also have to test for CUDA instead of CUBLAS as well.



We are aware of the slow initialization for CUBLAS and we are working on it.

Ok thanks, at least it’s not a problem coming from my setup …

keep up the good work,
