Nsight Systems Exposes New GPU Optimization Opportunities

Originally published at: https://developer.nvidia.com/blog/nsight-systems-exposes-gpu-optimization/

As GPU performance steadily ramps up, your application may be overdue for a tune-up to keep pace. Developers have used independent CPU profilers and GPU profilers in search of bottlenecks and optimization opportunities across their disjointed datasets for years. Using these independent tools can result in picking small optimizations based on false positive indicators or…
