I’ve seen some material (at Anandtech) about G8x-level integrated graphics. I’m curious if this will mean that there will be a CUDA-capable card that has direct access to some portion of main memory. Even if this isn’t a beefy card, it’s still an interesting possibility, as in many cases, it’s our transfers to and from the GPU’s memory that are our main source of latency, not the processing.
I could see this going either way, though. Perhaps making CUDA work on a IGP is too much effort for too little reward. I know that NVIDIA has said that they’ll make CUDA work on all 8xxx-series cards and beyond, but the statement wasn’t really clear about whether it would apply to integrated graphics.
