In this paper, we present the parallelization design consideration for irregular algorithms of video processing on GPUs. Enrich parallelism can be exploited by scheduling the processing order or making a tradeoff between performance and parallelism for irregular algorithms (such as CAVLC and deblocking filter). We implement a component-oriented CAVLC encoder and a direction-oriented deblocking filter on GPUs. The experiment results show that, compared with the implementation on CPU, the optimized parallel methods achieve high performance in term of speedup ratio from 63 to 44, relatively for deblocking filter and CAVLC. It shows that the rich parallelism is one of the most important factors to gain high performance for irregular algorithms based on GPUs. In addition, it seems that for some irregular kernels, the number of SM of GPU is more important to the performance than the computation capability.

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.
