In the past decades, besides experiencing a huge development in terms of computation speed, we have also experienced the emergence of the Programmable GPU, giving birth to languages like GLSL and CUDA. This technology gives great flexibility for the usage of such a powerful hardware, attracting the interest of many researchers and programmers to this area. More recently, the release of OpenGL 4 provided even more flexibility to users, but has turned the learning curve steeper, since even the basic applications demands knowledge of many Linear Algebra concepts and extensive proficiency in Shaders and OpenGL programming. This paper focus in a shaders library aimed to help students, researchers and programmers in the usage of GPU programming with OpenGL 4.

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
