need to install anything else to use pgi with tesla k20xm

I just installed pgi 14.1 and a co-worker asked if we needed to install the cuda 5.5 toolkit. I think PGI bundles this with the linux installation packatge. Are there any advantages to install the nvidia cuda toolkit also??


Hi Bernie,

We ship all components needed to build Accelerator binaries using CUDA Fortran or OpenACC. The only other thing you’d need to install is the CUDA device driver.

However, you are welcome to install the CUDA SDK as well. Our generated code is object compatible with CUDA C so you can mix the two.
