i’m currently using the instrumented driver that came with NVPerfKit for my work, but for school i would want to start learning CUDA (in emulated mode) with the Matlab plugin for CUDA 1.1.
I’m using Windows XP SP2, and my video card is a Geforce Go 7600 (so only emulated mode possible, right?)
It would be thankful if someone could point me in the right direction on the following questions:
Is there an instrumented driver with CUDA support?
If not, is it possible to quickly switch between drivers somehow? (ugly hacks allowed ;) )
Are newer drivers like the one that is listed with CUDA 2.0b2 backwards compatible with older CUDA versions, or is it a driver per version?
Is CUDA 2.0 backwards compatible with plugins developed for older versions of CUDA (like the Matlab plugin)?
