Gaussian Blur faster on OpenCV than on NVidia CUDA RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi!

    It's my first time posting here!

    I was trying to do a comparison between applying Gaussian blur in OpenCV and with the NVidia Toolkit and compare their speeds. I was expecting the CUDA version to be much faster, but in fact it isn't.

    On 8K images, OpenCV's Gaussian Blur takes 700 miliseconds and CUDA takes 2700 miliseconds.

    Might it be that I only counted the time of the filtering only? And for CUDA it takes some time to transfer the data between CPU and GPU? I started the counter before applying the filter and ended counting the time afte the filtering was done. No other operation was included in this observation.

    The codes I got for reference in this comparison:

    I limited myself to using 3x3 kernels for now.
