Hi, I’m new around here, I have been reading the forums but I couldn’t find the answer to my question.
The team I am working right now is thinking about buying a video card for data processing and a few question were raised during the last meeting.
In the project I am working right now we have a huge amount of data to process, and we need real time feedback for this data. The processing part is really simple and most of the cuda enabled cards should be able to handle it, at least, initially. My problem is the real time feedback, it requires too many IO interruptions, which lags the whole system.
So, if we consider the following scenario:
A Video Card with 2 HDMI or DVI outputs
Is it possible to stream data through one of these ports?
And considering I’m using a video card Sli enabled, is it possible stream data through the Sli port?
Basically, I want the Video card to be performing all the calculation on the data without passing the data through the main board, receiving the data through the Sli port from a proprietary hardware, passing the feedback (data pre-processed) required through the hdmi port, and using the PCI slot only to send the data completely processed to the main program.
Yeah, I know, kind of dreaming, but theoretically it is possible, the only thing I don’t know are the limitations of the CUDA framework.
Thanks for the help.
