I was wondering if anyone knows a fast method of finding the maximum value in a Cuda C array. I can't get max_element to work, but not sure its very fast anyways. I know I could do a for loop, but for an array with 100,000+ elements (smallest cases) it takes a lot of time (plus it has to continue through the loop even once its found what will eventually be the max value).(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Anyone aware of any tricks?
