Gaussian blur with CUDA 5

We will continue from a previous example of RGBA to gray image conversion with CUDA 5 and add gaussian filter. After applying the filter we will achieve the following transformation: to: Here’s the information showing time it took to run CUDA kernel on the GPU compared to time on the CPU: This code will work with RGBA images where […]

RGBA to Gray image conversion with CUDA 5

In this article we will demonstrate a simple conversion from RGBA to grayscale image using CUDA 5, we will build on a previous example of a simple CUDA kernel. For example, the following RGB picture of flowers will look like this after running the filter: and to execute the application we will call it like […]

CUDA 5.0 and Visual Studio 2012 Configuration

Note that CUDA 5.5 fully supports Visual Studio 2012.. I will explain in this article how to set your environment in order to successfully write and run CUDA 5 programs with Visual Studio 2012. It takes time to figure out how to get it done and there is very little information on the internet, so […]
