Hi seems now CUDA 7.0RC is avaiable and we have even 6.0 compatible CULA still..
as said by others no Maxwell love?
as I see also CUSOLVER new library seems to have similar to CULA functions and being free assumes
CULA is dead, right? is Nvidia using CULA code and renamed to CUSOLVER or is a new library by Nvidia.. do you plan to compare to CULA..
thanks..

Certainly, there is not so much activity in thos CULA forums, so I think also CULA is dead. It would be nice if a forum moderator answers.

And about cuSOLVER, I don't know if it uses the CULA code, but by now cuSOLVER has not the functionality of CULA. For example, cuSOLVER doesn't implement dposv(), dgels() and other driver Lapack routines.
