Run C# code on GPU in a minute

We updated Hybridizer Essentials today.
We fixed numerous bugs, and added some new features:

  • Cublas, Cusparse and Nvblas are better supported in CUDA 9.0 and 9.1
  • We now support intrinsic includes
  • Visual studio integration should be faster, due to a large code refactoring and performance improvements
  • We added an Item template containing all the required boilerplate C# code. That should save you some precious time
  • Some users reported a freeze of Visual Studio 2017. This should be fixed
  • We had a time zone issue for PST users. Licenses now work immediately from their zone
  • cudaDeviceProperties are now correctly mapped in cuda 9.0 and 9.1
  • Generated CUDA projects now contain the -G option in debug
  • Binary is compiled for the machine’s GPU. That means it’s compiled with the best compute capability available, but can’t be run on another machine

Finally we updated Hybridizer Samples to integrate those changes.
Given those changes, it’s now possible to create a new C# project and run code on a GPU in less than a minute:

Stay tuned!

Hybridizer Essentials supports CUDA 9.1

cuda 9.1 on marketplace
Since the publication in parallelforall blog, we had 500 installations. We received both great and constructive feedbacks. The most important issue was the lack of CUDA 9.1 support. This is now done with version 1.1.5685.8524 of Hybridizer Essentials.

You can download it from Visual Studio Marketplace or from our release page on our github.

We also updated our SDK accordingly. We added four Visual Studio solutions, one for each Visual Studio version we support.

Be aware that version 15.5.3 of Visual Studio breaks CUDA support (even 9.1). Keep version 15.5.2 (or below) if you want CUDA with Visual Studio 2017.

Hybridizer Essentials is out!

We’re proud to announce the release of Hybridizer Essentials, a free Visual Studio extension.

Hybridizer Essentials is a Visual Studio extension providing a full-featured Hybridizer for C#/CUDA. It allows you to write C# code, keeping focus on business logic, and letting Hybridizer generate the appropriate binary to run on the GPU.

We also released a SDK on our public github. This SDK provides examples of code, ranging from simple hello world to a more complex generic heat equation solver using MonteCarlo.
