Nvidia CUDA Core on Ubuntu

CUDA or "Compute Unified Device Architecture" is an Nvidia project with its GPUs so they can work in parallel by solving complex algorithms that were originally handled by the CPU.

This technology has a wide variety of uses, whether for calculating physical properties in games, identifying hidden plaques in arteries, analyzing air traffic flow and even visualizing molecules.

"Kidding" the existence of CUDA colors and their activation on your Nvidia card may slightly improve system performance. I noticed a significant improvement within games, increasing its fluidity and also when editing videos with Kdenlive, although ffmpeg was not configured to render via GPU, the fluidity of the program itself was remarkable. By installing the following packages you can also render via GPU in Blender.

The tip goes for any Linux distribution, just install the same packages from your software manager, in the example I will use Ubuntu, in this case the system has the CUDA packages inside its own repository, depending on the distro you use, this may vary.

You can install the packages responsible for the proper functioning of CUDA on your Ubuntu by clicking the buttons below:

nvidia-cuda-toolkit
nvidia-cuda-toolkit
 nvidia-modprobe "border =" 0 "src =" https://3.bp.blogspot/-yvVqOdpBULg/VyPIW9_bY-I/AAAAAAAAWfk/RgJdE6GZHtQ7C-JHurKhK4RxBWcbbQx2B225%252B2252b2252b2b2b2b2b2b2b2b2b2b0 % 2B2015-10-04% 2529.png
nvidia-modprobe

If you prefer to install from the terminal use the following command:

sudo apt-get install nvidia-cuda-toolkit nvidia-modprobe

The process can take a long time, the packages that will be downloaded are over 600MB in size, so if you don't have a fast internet the alert is on.

At the end of the process I recommend restarting the computer. After restarting start testing your applications and realize the difference that makes of course performance miracles do not exist but in applications that require a little more of your video card the noticeable difference.

An example I can give the game "The Witcher 2" that before I could not play in the "ultimate" quality 60 FPS (GTX 960) and after this installation was possible.

If you test, tell us if the resource worked for you or not, see you next time!
