Real time convolution has many applications among others simulating room reverberation in audio processing. Non-uniformly partitioning filters could satisfy the both desired features of having a low latency and less computational complexity for an efficient convolution. However, distributing the computation to have an uniform demand on Central Processing Unit (CPU) is still challenging. Moreover, computational cost for very long filters is still not acceptable. In this thesis, a new algorithm is presented by taking advantage of the broad memory on Graphics Processing Units (GPU). Performing the computations of a non-uniformly partitioned block convolution on GPU could solve the problem of work load on CPU. It is shown that the computational time in this algorithm reduces for the filters with long length.

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.
