Hello, This is a general question about running CUDA on a Mac (10.9.5) with retina display.
The newer Macbook Pros have two graphics cards. The FrontEnd and CUDA utilize the same higher performance graphics card.
Does anyone know if I can make the FrontEnd use the lower performance card? Would this improve performance for my CUDA computations? If both the FrontEnd and CUDA are in use, is there a risk of GPU memory being overwritten? I seem to get more frequent crashes when CUDALink is loaded.
Showing that CUDA is using the Nvidia card:
activity monitor showing FrontEnd used
Showing that FrontEnd is using the same card
That app works and shows that both the FrontEnd and a cuda program both can access the GPU at the same time without crashing the FrontEnd.
The question remains whether I can specify that the FrontEnd use a specific graphics card.
Many thanks, Craig
