Release 319 Quadro, NVS, Tesla, & GRID Drivers for Windows - Version RN-WQ _v01 8 Chapter 02 : RELEASE 319 DRIVER CHANGES Turning Off V-Sync to Boost Performance To get the best benchmark and application performance measurements, turn V-Sync off as follows: 1 Open the NVIDIA Control Panel and make sure that Advanced Settings is selected from the control panel tool bar. 2 From the Select a Task pane, under 3D Settings, click Manage 3D Settings, then click the Global Settings tab. 3 From the Global presets pull-down menu, select Base profile. 4 From the Settings list box, select Vertical sync and change its value to Force off, then click Apply. 5 From the Global presets pull-down menu, select 3D App - Default Global Settings (the driver s default profile) or use the application profile that matches the application you are testing, then click Apply. Be sure to close the NVIDIA Control Panel completely leaving it open will affect benchmark and application performance. NVIDIA Application Configuration Engine (ACE) This driver includes the NVIDIA Application Configuration Engine (ACE), which automatically detects the workstation application and configures the appropriate profile settings in the NVIDIA Control Panel. See the NVIDIA Quadro Professional Drivers: NVIDIA Control Panel Quick Start Guide for more information about this feature. Release 319 Quadro, NVS, Tesla, & GRID Drivers for Windows - Version RN-WQ _v01 9 Chapter 02 : RELEASE 319 DRIVER CHANGES Using the WDDM Driver Model with Tesla GPU GOMs Tesla GPU Operation Modes Tesla K20X and K20 GPU Accelerators offer the ability to specify the GPU operation mode using NV-SMI/NVML. (refer to: https://developer.nvidia.com/nvidiamanagement-library-nvml). By setting the GPU operation mode, developers can selectively turn off certain features in the GPU to get the best performance per watt for certain workloads. The following are the supported GOMs: Compute-Only: For running compute tasks only. By default the Tesla K20X and K20 accelerator boards ship in this mode. Low-Double Precision: For graphics applications that don t require high bandwidth double precision. This is recommended for workloads that are not sensitive to double precision but at the same time need graphics capabilities. All On: This is recommended only when the workload needs full double precision as well as graphics capabilities. WDDM and TCC Driver Models Along with the GPU operation mode, the developer needs to select the compatible driver model for the Tesla K20X and K20. Tesla Compute Cluster (TCC): Optimized for running compute workloads. Windows Device Driver Model (WDDM): Designed for graphics application and not recommended for compute workloads. Compatibility Between GOM and Driver Models Table 1 shows which GPU operation modes are compatible with which driver models. Table 1 GOM and Driver Model Compatibility GOM TCC Driver WDDM Driver Use Case Support Model Model All On YES YES All use cases are supported. Release 319 Quadro, NVS, Tesla, & GRID Drivers for Windows - Version RN-WQ _v01 10 Chapter 02 : RELEASE 319 DRIVER CHANGES Table 1 GOM and Driver Model Compatibility GOM TCC Driver Model WDDM Driver Model Use Case Support Compute-Only YES NO The following are unsupported: X11 and those that require X11 (GLInterop, OCL conformance and VIPER) 32-bit Windows OS Low Double Precision YES YES All use cases supported. The compute-only GOM is supported only on the TCC driver model, while the WDDM driver model supports only GOM modes that enable graphics. The compute-only GOM and WDDM are incompatible and should not be used simultaneously. The Tesla K20 Active Accelerators for workstations ship in compute-only mode and cannot be modified. Therefore, use only the TCC driver model with these products. Using the WDDM Driver Model To use the WDDM driver model with Tesla K20x and K20 GPU Accelerators for servers, first switch the GOM mode from compute-only to All On, then switch from TCC to WDDM. Do not attempt to specify the driver model by editing the registry. Doing so can result in compute-only GOM and WDDM being configured simultaneously, which might require a clean installation of the driver to fix. Always use NVIDIA-provided tools to specify a processing mode or to switch between driver models. Such tools include nvidia-smi or the NVIDIA Control Panel- Manage Maximus Settings page. These tools provide warnings in the case of a conflict. Release 319 Quadro, NVS, Tesla, & GRID Drivers for Windows - Version RN-WQ _v01 11 Chapter 02 : RELEASE 319 DRIVER CHANGES SLI Multi-OS GPU Assignment in System Virtualization On systems with two supported graphics cards installed, this driver supports a system virtualization tool s ability to directly assign a GPU to a guest virtual machine (VM). This direct assignment allows the host and guest VM to each run on their own operating system and with their own GPU and driver. Supported Virtualization Software: Parallels Workstation Extreme Supported Graphics Cards 1 Up to two different models can be used in a system, from among the following: Quadro 6000 Quadro 5000 Quadro 4000 Quadro 2000 Quadro FX 5800 Quadro FX 4800 Quadro FX 3800 Video BIOS Requirement The graphics card assigned to the guest VM needs video BIOS version or later.
