Jacket v0.4 Release: The GPU Engine for MATLAB


We are happy to announce the release of Jacket beta version 0.4 - adding Windows 64-bit to our list off supported operating systems! You can download your free version of Jacket by logging in and downloading the new release:


In this newer version of Jacket, you will find:

  • Increased performance: Jacket speed improvements for many applications are very close to speeds achieved with raw CUDA code.
  • Increased operating system support: Jacket now supports Windows 32-bit, Windows 64-bit, Linux 32-bit, Linux 64-bit, and MacOSX 32-bit.
  • Improved benchmarking tools: gforce() now properly blocks until all computations are finished.
  • New installers: Jacket now comes with an automated installer to guide you through the installation process.
  • New features:
    ** find() no longer uses CUDPP and now performs well under memory pressure
    ** gsingles can now be used in subscripted reference and assignment
    ** gselect() allows you to select your computational GPU in multi-GPU setups

Also, along with Jacket v0.4, we are releasing new documentation and examples (both included in the download and available online):

We look forward to hearing your feedback and guidance on our forums (http://www.accelereyes.com/forums) and look forward to continually upgrading Jacket to meet your needs. If you are going to NVISION 2008, please stop by our booth - we’d love to meet with you!
