CUDA is a computing architecture designed to facilitate the development of parallel programs. In conjunction with a comprehensive software platform, the CUDA Architecture enables programmers to draw on the immense power of graphics processing units (GPUs) when building high-performance applications. GPUs, of course, have long been available for demanding graphics and game ...more

This book fits the mold of what most programmers are always looking for more of: trendy topics that seize the dialog. However, it's more than just trendy as my journey through this book was a mind expanding experience and I had a lot of fun working through the examples.

Shared memory, weaves/warps/texture memory, atomics, multiple GPUs, streams, reductions, just to name of few of the indispensable tools covered in this book. If you're going to develop software for massively parallel architectures

Great introduction to CUDA. You could probably find all this information somewhere on the web, but save yourself the time and read the book. It reads quick with well explained examples focusing on the CUDA and not side issues. There is only the occasional problem with it assuming to know what libraries to link against such as GL or glut, but that I figured out pretty quick. The books really gets you going on CUDA fast.

A perfect introduction for CUDA programming. Well organized and sectioned. I suggest it strongly for each one to start using CUDA to get benefit from GPU parallel development. It is the first book I have read to get ready for my master thesis.

The main issue I have noticed is the lack of instructions to install CUDA and configure its environment on different operating systems. Another issue is the repeating of many ideas and parts all over the book.

Seminal introduction to abusing your video card as a monster calculator. Excellent first book on CUDA, if a tad out dated.

Great starting point to CUDA with many useful examples

Although, CUDA and it's ecosystem changed a bit over last 5 years, it's still a rather good introduction

This is the most interesting Cuda book I've found. The examples are useful and clearly explained and OpenGL integration is done elegantly.
