I am interested if someone can tell why atomic extension are being introduced only for integer types (32bit and 64-bit).

Are there any specific constraints in implementing them for other data types? This seems to be really helpful for some of the problems i have been working recently.

 

Also Do NVIDIA support atomics for float/double?

 

Thanks
