I don't have 1500 rep on Stack overflow. But I would like to create a tag "bank-conflict" to deal specifically with the memory issues related to nvidia graphics cards, known as bank conflicts.

At present the tags and appear to be a mess. Could someone create the tag so that then I can add it to these questions & remove and ?

Why aren't there bank conflicts in global memory for cuda/opencl?

What is a bank conflict?

And also add it to some of these questions?

Edit: To provide a bit more information:

The phrase "bank conflict" is a term used by nVidia in their documentation. If you look at it has several questions about finance and one about reflective angles. If you look at , most deal with source code merging conflicts. I'm just trying to minimize ambiguities.

    Tag created. You should probably keep the bank tag, though. It has a sensible use in the realm of finance. But this effort to clean up tags is good; keep up the good work.

  • Yes. I wasn't suggesting to eliminate the tags. Only to remove them from those two questions.

Cody created the tag. He retagged the above questions. I retagged a few others which were specifically questions about bank-conflicts in shared memory on a GPU. I'll submit a tag wiki later today.
