  • Non graphical computing on GPU

    On the other hand CUDA is optimized to death and very good. Documentation and codes examples are everywhere (in C++ at least) but it is one more piece of software to install/configure and interact with from Rust. I don't know if Rust-CUDA is good or not. It's a WIP but the development seems stalled at this point (no commit since July)

    With Rust-CUDA you can write Rust code to run on the GPU quite easily, long as the code is no_std (and you have a NVIDIA GPU).
  • Can Rust do Computer Graphics and ML?

    And here's an example on how to add two floats using Rust-CUDA:

    I can't say whether or not it works well, and seems maybe fiddly to install, but Rust-CUDA might work for you.
  • Does Rust still depend on LLVM?
    3 projects | | 18 May 2022
    Kinda - SPIR-V is an intermediate representation that can be consumed by graphics drivers and compiled down by them to the GPU's native code. In that sense it's more similar to emitting LLVM IR than e.g. x86 machine code. Similarly, Rust-CUDA emits NVVM IR, which is a subset of LLVM IR.

    Rust-GPU look promising, also Rust-CUDA, also I see OpenCL 3.0 wrapper
