Do GPUs support Error Correcting Code (ECC) memory to detect data and correct data corruption?

At the moment, GPUs have limited support for ECC memory.

Unlike CPUs that support dedicated memory cells and wider memory buses to accommodate the ECC parity data, GPUs store ECC parity data in the same memory cells as the data - and transfer the data using the same fixed-memory bus.  This reduces the overall storage and throughput of GPUs when ECC parity checking is enabled.
