Some auto-homing like we do in OpenCL should be fairly high priority for CUDA. The outcome *may* be totally different with optimal values. Yes, or at least we should determine and document optimal settings for some common GPUs. I think that GTX 570/580/590 are most important now (of NVIDIA's), so maybe the defaults should be tuned for these, if we have compile-time defaults at all. Maybe we should do that even if we keep the default arch type at sm_10 for compatibility with much older GPUs, or maybe we should make the default arch type sm_20 (and accept that owners of much older GPUs will absolutely have to change that).
