Thanks for the tip! I didn't try to hardcode the value before. It is
also working for me if I hardcode block to (512, 1, 1) in the 3
functions function_prepare, function_prepared_call and
function_prepared_timed_call of pycuda/pycuda/driver.py.
However, the execution is quite slow (about the same speed as in CPU)
and is using 100% of a CPU core... is this normal? I use a Tesla
Andreas, do you know a way to display the usage of the GPU cores? I
could not find a good solution to check that the calculation is
actually done by the graphic card in my configuration...
Also, when trying to use the CUDA backend, I received a lot of:
ImportError: no module named cuda
because the backend tries to import codepy.cgen.cuda instead of cgen.cuda.
I committed a fix here: https://github.com/peter17/hedge/commit/1006674
