The Single-Source Shortest Path (SSSP) problem arises in many different fields. In this paper we present a GPUbased version of the Crauser et al. SSSP algorithm. Our work significantly speeds up the computation of the SSSP, not only with respect to the CPU-based version, but also to other state-of-the-art GPU implementation based on Dijkstra, due to Martin et al. Both GPU implementations have been evaluated using the last Nvidia architecture (Kepler). Our experimental results show that the new GPU-Crauser algorithm leads to speed-ups from 13x to 220x with respect to the CPU version and a performance gain of up to 17% with respect the GPU-Martin algorithm.

Free GPU computing nodes at hgpu.org

Registered users can now run their OpenCL application at hgpu.org. We provide 1 minute of computer time per each run on two nodes with two AMD and one nVidia graphics processing units, correspondingly. There are no restrictions on the number of starts.

The platforms are

Node 1
  • GPU device 0: nVidia GeForce GTX 560 Ti 2GB, 822MHz
  • GPU device 1: AMD/ATI Radeon HD 6970 2GB, 880MHz
  • CPU: AMD Phenom II X6 @ 2.8GHz 1055T
  • RAM: 12GB
  • OS: OpenSUSE 13.1
  • SDK: nVidia CUDA Toolkit 6.5.14, AMD APP SDK 3.0
Node 2
  • GPU device 0: AMD/ATI Radeon HD 7970 3GB, 1000MHz
  • GPU device 1: AMD/ATI Radeon HD 5870 2GB, 850MHz
  • CPU: Intel Core i7-2600 @ 3.4GHz
  • RAM: 16GB
  • OS: OpenSUSE 12.3
  • SDK: AMD APP SDK 3.0

Completed OpenCL project should be uploaded via User dashboard (see instructions and example there), compilation and execution terminal output logs will be provided to the user.
