Hi all,

I would like to establish parallel computing by using the GPU of my M2000 Nvidia graphics card. I was wondering if this works for all the softwares, in my case bioinformatics softwares like PASTA (Python platform), or is it limited to certain programming platforms or particular softwares/libraries provided by the parallel computing API such as CUDA?

Thanks.

you need to use software that is specifically designed to utilize CUDA, etc.

If you do go down the route of GPU programming, I'd suggest you take a look at Buhler & Cole's MERCATOR. Its purpose is to simplify CUDA programming by generating most of the dirty code for you. It is quite recent so I haven't used it myself yet but I expect I will have to very soon.

You'll need to research your card, your software-of-interest, and what framework it uses to interface with a GPU. Your card appears to support CUDA and OpenCL framework versions listed here.
