Notes about the PTX file extension:



To open this file type, a required software must be installed. Without it you only see a Windows message "The following file cannot be opened" (Windows 7) or "How do you want to open this file?" (Windows 10) if you double-click the file. There click on "More apps" and choose a suitable software to view such files on your PC or from email attachments.

The PTX file type is primarily associated with 'CUDA' by NVIDIA Corporation.

CUDA (originally Compute Unified Device Architecture although this is no longer used) is a parallel computing architecture developed by NVIDIA.

Basically, CUDA is the compute engine in NVIDIA graphics processing units or GPUs, that is accessible to software developers through industry standard programming languages.

Programmers use C for CUDA, compiled through a PathScale Open64 C compiler, to code algorithms for execution on the GPU. CUDA is architected to support all computational interfaces, including C and new open standards like OpenCL and DX11 Compute.

Third party wrappers are also available for Python, Fortran and Java.
