In the last decade, Graphics Processing Units (GPUs) have gained an increasing popularity as accelerators for High Performance Computing (HPC) applications. Recent GPUs are not only powerful graphics engines but also highly threaded parallel computing processors that can achieve sustainable speedup as compared with CPUs. In this context, researchers try to exploit the capability of this architecture to solve difficult problems in many domains in science and engineering. In this article, we present recent advances on GPU Computing in Operations Research. We focus in particular on Integer Programming and Linear Programming.

Free GPU computing nodes at

Registered users can now run their OpenCL application at 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: AMD/ATI Radeon HD 5870 2GB, 850MHz
  • GPU device 1: AMD/ATI Radeon HD 6970 2GB, 880MHz
  • CPU: AMD Phenom II X6 @ 2.8GHz 1055T
  • RAM: 12GB
  • OS: OpenSUSE 11.4
  • SDK: AMD APP SDK 2.8
Node 2
  • GPU device 0: AMD/ATI Radeon HD 7970 3GB, 1000MHz
  • GPU device 1: nVidia GeForce GTX 560 Ti 2GB, 822MHz
  • CPU: Intel Core i7-2600 @ 3.4GHz
  • RAM: 16GB
  • OS: OpenSUSE 12.2
  • SDK: nVidia CUDA Toolkit 5.0.35, AMD APP SDK 2.8

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.
