I use the CUDA toolkit to perform some computations on my Nvidia GPUs on Windows 7 SP1 x64 Ultimate. How to kill all processes that use a given GPU? (killing all processes at once)

    It can be done in Linux but see no way to do it in Windows, but is a good question. – Moab Dec 3 at 21:35
  • @Moab even taskkill can't do it? – LPChip Dec 4 at 7:36

This PowerShell command worked for me:

kill -9 $(nvidia-smi | sed -n 's/|\s*[0-9]*\s*\([0-9]*\)\d*.*/\1/p' | sort | uniq | sed '/^$/d')

    You should add that this is a powershell command, also I have neither nvidia-smi nor sed commands so I don't know what else is required to run this. – LPChip Dec 4 at 7:40
