Meet ‘CARMA’ – The CUDA on ARM Development Kit

December 19, 2011

The CUDA on ARM development kit gets official today, with a final spec-sheet and its crowdsourced codename.

Last week, we asked you, dear reader, for a few good codename suggestions. Within a matter of days, we were inundated with hundreds of thoughtful codename suggestions. Thanks to the help of our enthusiastic and creative NVIDIA community, we now have an official codename for our CUDA on ARM dev kit.

So, without further ado, meet CARMA.

Powered by a Tegra 3 quad-core ARM-based processor and an NVIDIA CUDA-enabled GPU, the CARMA DevKit is being developed to support energy-efficient HPC projects using ARM-based GPU computing. In fact, this technology will power the Barcelona Supercomputing Center’s ARM-based GPU supercomputer.
