Wide amount of applications like volumetric medical data compression, video watermarking and video coding use the three-dimensional wavelet transform (3D-DWT) in their algorithms. In this work, we present GPU algorithms, based on both global and shared memory, to compute the 3D-DWT transform on both the GTX280 and the GMT540 platforms. The results obtained show that speed-ups of 19.7 and 10.65 on average can be obtained for the GTX280 and GMT540 platforms respectively when only the GPU’s global memory is used. Moreover, Speed-ups increase considerably to 87 and 25 when the shared memory in the device is used optimizing the memory access to avoid idle threads. Futhermore, we discuss speed-up evolution depending on the group of pictures size (GOP).

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
