Default stage1_core_sm11.ptx, sort_engine_sm13.dll

Hello

What should I do with these files? What are they?
stage1_core_smXX.ptx, where XX=11, 13, 20
Do I Have to rename any?
and with these ones?
sort_engine_smYY.dll, where YY=10, 13, 20
Do I have to move any to the parent directory?

My msieve works but I was wondering if this would improve the speed by using different libraries for my graphics card....

OK, I've found that the ptx files are "cuda Ptx intermeditate assembly file", I guess that they are used when one compiles the code .
But what about that dll files?

They are loaded automatically as needed, no renaming necessary.

Read the GPU section of Readme.nfs for more details about how they are used.

Thanks.

But do I need to move those files to the parent directory?

You shouldn't need to move any files, the default is to look in b40c for the DLL to use. This can be overridden on the command line with a path to the file you want, via syntax explained in the readme.
