Is there c++ 17 parellel algorithm support on jetsonNX?

6. Getting started with Parallel Algorithms for GPUs
To get started, download and install the NVIDIA HPC SDK on your x86-64, OpenPOWER, or Arm CPU-based system running a supported version of Linux.
will it work on Jetson as on " Arm CPU-based system"?

Hi Andrey1984,

From that description below, it seems can support Jetson, but we never tried it:

The NVIDIA HPC SDK is freely downloadable and includes a perpetual use license for all NVIDIA Registered Developers, including access to future release updates as they are issued. After you have the NVIDIA HPC SDK installed on your system, the nvc++ compiler is available under the /opt/nvidia/hpc_sdk directory structure.

  • On an OpenPOWER or Arm CPU-based system, replace Linux_x86_64 with Linux_ppc64le or Linux_aarch64, respectively.

HPC SDK with cuda 10.2 support seems existent, but limited.

Trial 1:

 wget \ \

$ sudo apt-get install ./nvhpc-20-11_20.11_arm64.deb ./nvhpc-2020_20.11_arm64.deb ./nvhpc-20-11-cuda-multi_20.11_arm64.deb
Setting up nvhpc-20-11 (20.11) ...

ERROR: The determined CUDA version from the driver (10.2) is
older than the oldest bundled CUDA version (11.0)

Trial 2. Running example

Create a hello.c program.
#include <stdio.h>
int main() {
  printf("hello, world!\n");
  return 0;
gcc -march=armv8-a -o hello_64_c hello.c

 file ./hello_64_c

  return 0;

@kayccc how do we test with c++ nvc++ if it works?


HPC compiler (NVC++, NVC, NVFORTRAN) doesn’t support Jetson platform.
It supports Arm Server CPU platforms only.
