The heterogeneous parallel computing era has been accompanied by an ever-increasing number of disparate programming models. As a result, improving performance via heterogeneous computing is currently very challenging for application programmers. Domain-specific languages (DSLs) are a potential solution to this problem, as they can provide productivity, performance, and portability within the confines of a specific domain. However, making the DSL approach useful on a large scale requires lowering the barrier for DSL development. We describe a reusable compiler infrastructure called the Delite Compiler Framework that drastically simplifies the process of building embedded parallel DSLs. DSL developers can easily implement domain-specific operations by extending this framework, which provides static optimizations and code generation for heterogeneous hardware. We also describe the Delite Runtime, which automatically schedules and executes DSL operations on heterogeneous hardware. We demonstrate the potential of the DSL approach by showing the performance of applications written in OptiML, a machine learning DSL developed with the framework, on a system with multi-core CPUs and GPU.

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 12.2
  • SDK: AMD APP SDK 2.9

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
