use function find to search for multiple values

Hi there,
I have a matrix A which is 1024x810. For each row, I need to find the maximum value and then locate the position of the maximum value on each row. I am thinking of the following code

A = rand(1024, 810);
find(A==max(A, [], 2))

but this doesn't work. If I use a loop to search one row at a time, it return the position as expected but it is quite slow to use a loop since above operation will be performed so many times. Any idea to do it faster? Thanks
