CUDA GPUs and their compute capability

📅 2013-Jan-25 ⬩ ✍️ Ashwin Nanjappa ⬩ 🏷️ compute capability, cuda ⬩ 📚 Archive

When I first started with CUDA, it used to be cumbersome to find out the compute capability version (or SM version) of a given NVIDIA GPU. This is required when you want to have your code work across GPUs of different compute capabilities.

Thankfully, all that information is now available in a single page:

To check the capabilities associated with each version, check the Compute Capabilities appendix of the CUDA Programming Guide.

Some of the ones I lookup frequently are listed below.
