Binary Space Partitioning (BSP) Tree can be used for hidden surface removal. In order to hide invisible surfaces, all surfaces are sorted back to front or front to back order. Traversal of BSP Trees for back to front order of faces requires calculation for all BSP Tree nodes, which can be made in parallel manner. NVIDIA’s CUDA (Compute Unified Device Architecture) is a parallel programming model for GPUs, which shows performance over CPUs for massively parallel computations. Using BSP Tree, rendering of faces sorted by CUDA is implemented and rendering times are compared with the ones observed for the case that CUDA is not used.

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
