Recently I have struggled a lot to profile a CUDA application on the Shield Tablet. If you were thinking “What the hell would you need a CUDA app for, on a tablet?” I would understand :D. CUDA it’s not for everyday use but can be very powerful.

As of now (Late 2015), the Shield has the most powerful mobile GPU on the market (Tegra Kepler architecture with 192 streaming processors). I decided to evaluate and profile physics algorithms using such architecture.
