I recently started working with CUDA and its truly amazing the performance gain we can achieve by using a GPU. I was wondering if we can also use the Graphic card to accelerate some software applications with CUDA.
I know that there is a patch for MATLAB using CUDA, but I understand that the coding must be different too. i.e, we can not use the regular code for accelerting on the graphic card (similar to our .cu programs)
So, how do we accelerate softwares which are very compute intensive but have no coding involed (say Volume graphics studio max volume graphics studio max for example). Can we use CUDA to accelerate such softwares?
