Hi, all guys.
I want to find the maximum block number. So I used the occupancy calculator
But I don’t know the meaning of it.
What is Warps? It is same with Blocks?
I am using GTX480. Seeing the spec for GTX480, there are 480 cores. Is core equal to multiprocessor? Or is there a difference?
This is my occupancy calculator result
GPU Occupancy Data is displayed here and in the graphs:
Active Threads per Multiprocessor 1536
Active Warps per Multiprocessor 48
Active Thread Blocks per Multiprocessor 3
Occupancy of each Multiprocessor 100%
Then I can make 3 blocks maximum?? And What is occupancy mean? it is the percentage for utilization?
I am sorry for my poor English and many questions. Plz answer to my question :)
