The introduction of General-Purpose computation on GPUs (GPGPUs) has changed the landscape for the future of parallel computing. At the core of this phenomenon are massively multithreaded, data-parallel architectures possessing impressive acceleration ratings, offering low-cost supercomputing together with attractive power budgets. Even given the numerous benefits provided by GPGPUs, there remain a number of barriers […]

Optimizing program execution targeted for Graphics Processing Units (GPUs) can be very challenging. Our ability to efficiently map serial code to a GPU or stream processing platform is a time consuming task and is greatly hampered by a lack of detail about the underlying hardware. Programmers are left to attempt trial and error to produce […]

Loop vectorization, a key feature exploited to obtain high performance on Single Instruction Multiple Data (SIMD) vector architectures, is significantly hindered by irregular memory access patterns in the data stream. This paper describes data transformations that allow us to vectorize loops targeting massively multithreaded data parallel architectures. We present a mathematical model that captures loop-based […]

Efficient visibility queries are key in many interactive rendering techniques, such as occlusion culling, level of detail determination, and perceptual rendering. The occlusion query mechanism natively supported by GPUs is carried out for batches of rendered geometry. In this paper, we present two novel ways of determining visibility by intelligently querying summed area tables and […]

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: 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.
