GPU Acceleration

Bloqade supports CUDA acceleration. To use CUDA acceleration, you will need a NVIDIA graphics processing unit (GPU).


you need to install the following fork for now

pkg> add

To use CUDA accelerators, you need to install the CUDA package:

pkg> add CUDA

This will automatically download all the needed dependencies of the CUDA toolkit.

Using CUDA

Converting your CPU-based simulation to CUDA-based simulation is extremely simple: just use the cu function from CUDA on the register object, which will convert the CPU-based register to a CUDA-based register, e.g.:

using CUDA
reg = zero_state(5)
dreg = cu(reg) # device register

For emulation, you can call cu on your emulation object to convert everything (emulation intermediate memory, etc.) into the GPU memory, e.g.:

cu(KrylovEvolution(reg, clocks, h))

Other codes in Bloqade should work with CUDA automatically.
