Multicore-GPU platforms are now common and affordable, yet capitalising on their parallel processing capability is not straightforward. Existing sequential and parallel software must be tuned, or designed anew, to efficiently capitalise on these platforms. This paper presents the design of parallel data list processing in multicore-GPU platforms, wherein application data is organised into various lists, one list for each core and GPU device, for the purpose of balancing the workload through work (data items) stealing. A novel aspect of our design is the processing of new data dynamically generated within GPUs. We present experimental results for three applications with different granularities and access patterns. Overall the use of GPUs can significantly improve performance, but using them profitably may not be simple.

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.
