Efficient parallel algorithms are often written with embedded knowledge of the back-end that they are meant to be executed on, and if they are not, the translation to target language often produces inefficient code. A concrete problem is space complexity in nested data parallel (NDP) languages such as NESL and Data Parallel Haskell, where large intermediate arrays are often allocated during execution. This thesis presents an NDP language with a streaming based model where the time complexity of programs is just as good as in traditional NDP languages, but the space complexity is significantly better in many cases. A minimal NDP language with semantics and a desirable cost model is defined, as well as a streaming based target language, and the two languages are related with a translation, a proof-of-concept implementation and a conjecture about value and cost preservation.

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
