CUDA Project #1

After CUDA 5 is installed with the new drivers there is a builtin template that becomes part of Microsoft Visual 2010.  Click on New Project and under Templates select NVIDIA and then CUDA.  You should see the CUDA 5.0 Runtime template appear.  Pick it.  The following green template should appear ready for you to compile and run.  Run it.  As soon as you it runs do the following

Modify this program so that its will add two arrays together which are 10000000 integers long and place the answer into a third array.  IE array A and array B should be added to create array C.  Be sure and use malloc() to create these since something like  int A[10000000] will not work.  Initialize the two arrays to random numbers from 0 to 100.

Print out the first 10 values of each array using a \t to separate the values.  This way I can see if your vector sum worked.  This is an easy warm up for CUDA so don’t make a mountain out of a molehill.  Capice!?  The CUDA C Programming Guide has all you need.
