pyCUDA for ARM (armv7l) Linux GNUroot Debian on NVIDIA Shield Tablet [Tegra K1] - EXPERIMENTAL: much of cuda driver API works but no cuda runtime API. REQUIRES: Linux for Tegra cuda-6.5-toolkit [.deb package] and libcuda.so.1.1 in /usr/lib (from Jetson TK1 Driver Package) @ https://developer.nvidia.com/linux-tegra-rel-21
PyCUDA lets you access Nvidia’s CUDA parallel computation API from Python. Several wrappers of the CUDA API already exist-so what’s so special about PyCUDA?
Object cleanup tied to lifetime of objects. This idiom, often called RAII in C++, makes it much easier to write correct, leak- and crash-free code. PyCUDA knows about dependencies, too, so (for example) it won’t detach from a context before all memory allocated in it is also freed.
Convenience. Abstractions like pycuda.driver.SourceModule and pycuda.gpuarray.GPUArray make CUDA programming even more convenient than with Nvidia’s C-based runtime.
Completeness. PyCUDA puts the full power of CUDA’s driver API at your disposal, if you wish. It also includes code for interoperability with OpenGL.
Automatic Error Checking. All CUDA errors are automatically translated into Python exceptions.
Speed. PyCUDA’s base layer is written in C++, so all the niceties above are virtually free.
