This paper presents a comprehensive survey on parallelizing computations involved in optimization problem on Graphics Processing Unit (GPU) using CUDA (Compute Unified Design Architecture). GPU have multithread cores with high memory bandwidth which allow for greater ease of use and also more radially support a layer body of applications. Many researchers have reported significant speedups with General Purpose computing on GPU (GPGPU). Stochastic meta-heuristic search algorithms, e.g., Mixed Integer Non-Linear Programming (MINLP), Central Force Optimization(CFO), Genetic Algorithms (GA), and Particle Swarm Optimization(PSO), etc. are being investigated nowadays for improved performance with processing power of GPU. From study it is found that GPGPU shows tremendous speedups from 7 times in Steady State GAs to 10, 000 times speedups in CFO.

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
