    !!!new!!! Drivers 261.00 CUDA Toolkit 3.2 RC 2 (October 2010) Download & Discussion

    CUDA Toolkit 3.2 RC 2 (October 2010)

    Release Highlights

    New and Improved CUDA Libraries
    --------------------------------------------------------------------
    CUSPARSE, a new library of GPU-accelerated sparse matrix routines for sparse/sparse and dense/sparse operations
    CURAND, a new library of GPU-accelerated random number generation (RNG) routines, supporting Sobol quasi-random and XORWOW pseudo-random routines for in both host and device code
    CUFFT performance tuned for radix-3, -5, and -7 transform sizes on Fermi architecture GPUs
    CUBLAS performance improved 50% to 300% on Fermi architecture GPUs, for matrix multiplication of all datatypes and transpose variations
    H.264 encode/decode libraries that were previously available in the GPU Computing SDK are now part of the CUDA Toolkit
    CUDA Driver & CUDA C Runtime
    Support for new 6GB Quadro and Tesla products
    Support for debugging GPUs with more than 4GB device memory.
    Integrated Tesla Compute Cluster (TCC) support in standard Windows driver packages
    Development Tools

    Multi-GPU debugging support for both cuda-gdb and Parallel Nsight
    Added cuda-memcheck support for Fermi architecture GPUs
    NVCC support for Intel C Compiler (ICC) v11.1 on 64-bit Linux distros
    Miscellaneous

    Support for malloc() and free() in CUDA C compute kernels
    NVIDIA System Management Interface (nvidia-smi) support for reporting % GPU busy, and several GPU performance counters
    New GPU Computing SDK Code Samples

    Several code samples demonstrating how to use the new CURAND library, including MonteCarloCURAND, EstimatePiInlineP, EstimatePiInlineQ, EstimatePiP, EstimatePiQ, and SingleAsianOptionP
    Conjugate Gradient Solver, demonstrating the use of CUBLAS and CUSPARSE together
    Function Pointers, a sample that shows how to use function pointers to implement the Sobel Edge Detection filter for 8-bit monochrome images
    Interval Computing, demonstrating the use of interval arithmetic operators using C++ templates and recursion
    Simple Printf, demonstrating best practices for using both printf and cuprintf in compute kernels
    Bilateral Filter, an edge-preserving non-linear smoothing filter for image recovery and denoising that is implemented in CUDA C with OpenGL rendering
    SLI with Direct3D Texture, a simple example demonstrating the use of SLI and Direct3D interoperability with CUDA C
    Windows developers should be sure to check out the new debugging and profiling features in Parallel Nsight for Visual Studio at www.nvidia.com/ParallelNsight.

    Please refer to the Release Notes and Getting Started Guides for more information.

    In CUDA Toolkit 3.2 and the accompanying release of the CUDA driver, some important changes have been made to the CUDA Driver API to support large memory access for device code and to enable further system calls such as malloc and free. Please refer to the CUDA Toolkit 3.2 Readiness Tech Brief for a summary of these changes.

    Note: The developer driver packages below provide baseline support for the widest number of NVIDIA products in the smallest number of installers. More recent production driver packages for developers and end users are available at www.nvidia.com/drivers.

    Although everything works , it did some strange things on installing!. Although it was normal to see my screen blink on and off as it switched drivers , i wasn't expecting a flashing cursor then all my desktop icons to vanish and reappear one by one

    :D

    Lots of CUDA stuff there :p CoreAVC has been working fine for me, sometimes it messes up when I have Skype maximised in the background.

    the Win 7 64 bit version;

    OK now where getting some where with these drivers the Display-link problem with NVCP issue is fixed.

    But however the windows control panel/ all control panel items/ personalization option/ still does not work, aero still not working, windows color custom still not working but your heading into the right direction.

    The current video card may support Aero with a driver that is compliant with the Windows Display Driver Model (WDDM). Contact the manufacturer of your computer or video card for a WDDM-compatible driver.

    None of my games work C++ runtime errors
    Falcon 4 AF ctd's, FF5.55 CTD's.
    A10c beta C++ runtime errors.

    Wow 1 step forward 3 steps back to 258.96.
