There can be many types of heterogeneous computing systems, and the most useful one is the CPU and GPU computing system. In this system, we try to run QR decomposition, which expresses a standard real matrix as a production of two matrices. For a tiled QR decomposition algorithm, which is a parallelized version of QR decomposition, because of the heterogeneity of computing devices and communication cost, the way that each tile is distributed into which device is the main issue of tiled QR decomposition. The goal of this study is to optimize the tile distribution and the tiled QR decomposition operation mathematically, depending on the given system. We select the main computing device for the main steps of the algorithm, optimize the number of devices, and optimize the tile distribution among the devices using a distribution guide array. Our evaluation confirms that our method has good scalability and the optimization process maximizes the tiled QR decomposition performance.

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.
