Which tool (if any) supports Quadro K4200?

I am on Windows 10 Pro, 64 bit.

I got the current CUDA SDK (10.0) with the most recent drivers, and an old(er) Dell computer with Quadro K4200 in it. I’d like to be able to get the details of my compute code, but the current version (1.0) of Nsight Compute tells me “device is not or not fully supported”, and I don’t get to see the details of ‘Compute Workload Analysis’ and many other parts of the report (they are blank) after a day-and-a-half experiment.*

I would like to get more details on my code’s behavior. Is there a tool (older, I s’pose) similar to Nsight Compute, that would help me? Visual Profiler hangs the system, so I haven’t been able to use that… Or is my only choice to pay for more up-to-date hardware? If so, which would it be? BTW, can I get a discount? I’ll trade my K4200 in…

Thank you!

  • I really wish it were quicker to tell me the uselessness of trying. What a waste of time it was!

Quadro K4200 is a Kepler-architecture chip. The Nsight Compute documentation shows that only Pascal and newer GPUs are supported by this tool: https://docs.nvidia.com/nsight-compute/ReleaseNotes/index.html

You should use nvprof or Visual Profiler to profile on this GPU and architecture on Linux and Windows. nvprof is the command line backend of Visual Profiler, and might not cause the issues you are experiencing with the UI tool.

Since you are on Windows, you can also use Nsight Visual Studio Edition.
