The Compute Unified Device Architecture (CUDA) enables NVIDIA graphics processing units (GPUs) to be used for massively parallel general purpose computation.

This package contains the nvcc compiler and other tools needed for building CUDA applications.

Running CUDA applications requires a supported NVIDIA GPU and the NVIDIA driver kernel module.

Along with the nvidia-settings and nvidia-prime packages, this tool used to work perfectly with my laptop's discrete GeForce 940MX 3D adapter. It enabled GPU encoding/decoding in any video application such as VLC or Shotcut. Alas! Something is broken now and I can't install it on LM 20.2 anymore -- the package is flagged as "unavailable" in the Software Manager app. :-(

If you're trying to compile anything with this and find it is incompatible with gcc - that's because the version here on the repos is outdated.
