Multi-core platforms become ubiquitous nowadays. Even laptops contain multi-core processors now. There are multiple cores in a chip or socket or die. A computing node contains multiple chips. Multi-core platforms are rapidly increasing and the number of cores on these platforms is increasing rapidly too. How to enjoy the benefits of parallel computing on the multi-core platforms plays a key role in High Performance Computing. With the increasing complexity of modern multi-core processors, the problem of distributing a software application across different cores to maximize the utilization of the computing power becomes more and more difficult. Different programming patterns great influence the program performance. We implement different parallel programming paradigms on Himeno Benchmark via hybrid MPI/OpenMP in this paper. Moreover, we will evaluate the performance of those on NCHC GPU Cluster and NCHC ALPS. We establish a Roofline Model for NVIDIA GT200, too. We hope the results can give some useful information to the user of HPC.

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 12.2
  • SDK: AMD APP SDK 2.9

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
