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:
