Supported architectures


#1

Hi,

I’m new to GPU’s and just started learning about them and MapD recently.
I noticed in the documentation that the GPU’s you currently support are Kepler and Pascal.

Considering that Maxwell is a newer more powerful architecture than Kepler is there a reason why it’s not currently officially supported? Additionally, are there plans in the future to bring in official support for it?

Hi

We currently have no plans to officially support Maxwell. There are a number of problems that occur on Maxwell that seem to be bugs with card implementation.

With all that said, we do currently run on Maxwell. I have a Maxwell laptop and workstation which I use quite regularly. We just won’t spend time chasing odd behaviour on Maxwell cards, so no official support.

I hope this helps.

Regards
