Lionel London (CRA) – GPU Computing in Matlab
- Matlab Parallel Computing Toolbox (PCT) vs. Jacket
- PCT allows for multi-cpu and GPU computing. Limited to 12 cores on the local machine. Very high level.
- GPU computing with PCT requires an nVidia card with v1.3 compute capabilities. GPGPU with Jacket has relaxed requirements but is very expensive ($4k for 5 licenses!)
- PCT GPU can run external .cu files.
- Jacket has 10x more CUDA-enabled functions than Matlab. It’s cluster capable.
