Multi-core processors are present in most forms of computing, from a pocket-size smartphone to supercomputers. Consequently, parallel and concurrent programming has reemerged as a pressing concern for everyone interested in exploring all the potential computational power in these machines. Writing parallel, and specially concurrent, programs is not a trivial task as it requires a different reasoning model about the program. Moreover, most of the existing computer is sequential, and does not take advantage of the underlying parallelism of multicore CPUs. The proposed work intends to improve and further advance techniques that automatically parallelize a program. The result of this work should provide better ways of generating parallel programs that are faster and correct.

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.

The information send to hgpu.org will be treated according to our Privacy Policy
