I’m going to start on a new CUDA development project. The target device will be some mobile Kepler chip, but we won’t have access to that platform during the early stages of development. So my plan is to install some other GPU card on my desktop PC for initial testing/debugging.
Preferably, this card should feature a chip from the Kepler generation, in case I need to test/debug code using compute capability 3.x features.
Problem is though, that my PC is rather old. It doesn’t have a very strong power supply, and consequently no dedicated power plug for a graphics card.
Because of this, I’ve been considering something like the GT640. But now I’ve read in another post that Visual Nsight is not supporting this device, only the GTX670 and 680 are listed from the Kepler family?
Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated.
