Zero copy feature and Nehalem platform

Am I right that there’s currently no way to utilize this feature with Core i7 as there are simply no NVIDIA chipsets for Nehalem ?

No? You can use it with a GT200, you just don’t get copy elimination. You can still transfer data across PCIe transparently from zero-copy memory.


  • Zero-copy access to pinned system memory
  • Allows MCP7x and GT200 and later GPUs to use system memory without


Looks like I misunderstood the “MCP7x and GT200” statement - I thought that this feature will work only when BOTH MCP7x and GT200 are present in the system.

Thank you for your answer.
