This work presents the design and implementation of a massively parallel 3-SAT solver, specifically targeting random problem instances. Our approach is deterministic and features very little communication overhead and basically no load-balancing cost at all. In the context of most current parallel SAT solvers running only on a handful of cores, we implemented our solver on Nvidia’s CUDA platform, utilizing more than 200 parallel streaming processors, and employing several millions of threads to work through single problem instances. As most common sequential solver techniques had to be discarded, our approach is additionally supported by a new set of global heuristics, designed specifically to be easily exploited by the underlying thread parallelism.

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.
