Nvidia Cuda For Mac Release

8/16/2021
  1. Nvidia Cuda Install
  2. Nvidia Cuda Cores
  3. Nvidia Cuda Driver
  4. Nvidia Cuda 10.0
  5. Nvidia Cuda 5.5 For Mac Os X Release

New Release 8.0.51. CUDA driver update to support macOS 10.12 and NVIDIA display driver 367.15.10.15f01; Recommended CUDA version(s): CUDA 8.0; Supported MAC OS X. 10.12.x; 10.11.x; An alternative method to download the latest CUDA driver is within Mac OS environment. Access the latest driver through System Preferences Other CUDA. Note: Quadro FX for Mac or GeForce for Mac must be installed prior to CUDA 5.0.24 installation Known Issues. There is a known issue in this release where forcing or allowing the system to go to sleep while running CUDA applications on 2012 MacBook Pro models with automatic graphics switching will cause a system crash (kernel panic). NVIDIA CUDA TOOLKIT 9.2.148 RN-06722-001 v9.2 August 2018 Release Notes for Windows, Linux, and Mac OS.

NVIDIA® CUDA Toolkit 11.0 no longer supports development or running applications on macOS. While there are no tools which use macOS as a target environment, NVIDIA is making macOS host versions of these tools that you can launch profiling and debugging sessions on supported target platforms.

You may download all these tools here. Note that the Nsight tools provide the ability to download these macOS host versions on their respective product pages.

Please visit each tool's overview page for more information about the tool and its supported target platforms.

The macOS host tools provided are:

  • Nsight Systems - a system profiler and timeline trace tool supporting Pascal and newer GPUs
  • Nsight Compute - a CUDA kernel profiler supporting Volta and new GPUs
  • Visual Profiler - a CUDA kernel and system profiler and timeline trace tool supporting older GPUs (see installation instructions, below)
  • cuda-gdb - a GPU and CPU CUDA application debugger (see installation instructions, below)

Instructions for installing cuda-gdb on the macOS

    This tar archive holds the distribution of the CUDA 11.0 cuda-gdb debugger front-end for macOS.
    Native macOS debugging is not supported in this release. Remote debugging from a macOS host to other CUDA enabled targets, however, is supported.
    To install:
    1. Create an installation directory
        INSTALL_DIR=$HOME/cuda-gdb-darwin-11.0
        mkdir $INSTALL_DIR
        cd $INSTALL_DIR
    2. Download the cuda-gdb-darwin-11.0.tar.gz tar archive into $INSTALL_DIR above
    3. Unpack the tar archive
        tar fxvz cuda-gdb-darwin-11.0.tar.gz
    4. Add the bin directory to your path
        PATH=$INSTALL_DIR/bin:$PATH
    5. Run cuda-gdb --version to confirm you're picking up the correct binaries
        cuda-gdb --version
    6. You should see the following output:

      Notes about JRE Requirements when using Visual Profiler on the macOS

        OpenJDK provides an open-source (and standards compliant) implementation of a Java compliant JVM.
        Binaries are provided by various vendors such as Oracle, Azul Systems (Zulu), Amazon, Red Hat, IBM, etc.
        Visual Profiler needs to use an older version of Java, specifically JRE update 151, to work correctly.
        This is currently not offered by Oracle JDK but is provided by Azul Systems (Zulu).
        The Bazel Build project also uses the Zulu builds of OpenJDK.
        Download JDK 8.0.144 to get JRE update 151:
          • Download version: 8u144-b01 (Zulu: 8.23.0.3) .dmg.zip.tar.gz
          • Download version: Zulu 8.23.0.3 (build 1.8.0_144-b01 .zip
