The increasing level of realism in digital games depends not only on the enhancement of modeling and rendering effects, but also on the improvement of different aspects such as animation, characters artificial intelligence and physics simulation. Normally, games process most of their tasks in the CPU, using the GPU only for graphics processing. Several games […]

This article presents a new architecture to implement all game loop models for games and real-time applications that use the GPU as a mathematics and physics coprocessor, working in parallel processing mode with the CPU. The presented model applies automatic task distribution concepts. The architecture can apply a set of heuristics defined in Lua scripts […]

We propose a hybrid method for computing apparent ridges, expressive lines recently introduced by Judd et al. Unlike their original method, which works entirely over the mesh in object space, our method combines object-space and image-space computations and runs partially on the GPU, taking advantage of modern graphic cards processing power and producing faster results […]

The GPUs (Graphics Processing Units) have evolved into extremely powerful and flexible processors, allowing its usage for processing different data. This advantage can be used in game development to optimize the game loop. Most GPGPU works deals only with some steps of the game loop, allowing to the CPU to process most of the game […]

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.

The information send to hgpu.org will be treated according to our Privacy Policy
