Nvidia GPU memory availbility on Windows 10 RRS feed

  • Question

  • 1. We are using an API to check Current GPU memory usage.
     cudaError_t cudaMemGetInfo( size_t* free, size_t* total)
    When we compare usage value returning this API with nvidia-smi.exe result.
    it's different.
    Windows 7 gives us the same result, but Window 10 gives us different value.
     please let me know the reason and how to get exact memory usage status on Windows 10.

    2. It seems like we can't use GPU memory fully on Window 10.
    There wasn't any limitation on Window 7.
    So We can't run our Program since upgrading Windows 10 from Windows 7. ( HW condition is same and we are using Geforce 1080 GPU.)
    please let us know the way to use GPU memory fully on Windows 10.

    What do you mean you can't run your program in Win10? Have you got any error when you fail to run this app? What's the type is your app?

    If you want to know Windows settings about GPU usage, I suggest you post on this forum below.
