We propose a versatile pipeline to render B-Rep models interactively, precisely and without rendering-related artifacts such as cracks. Our rendering method is based on dynamic surface evaluation using both tesselation and ray-casting, and direct GPU surface trimming. An initial rendering of the scene is performed using dynamic tesselation. The algorithm we propose reliably detects then […]

This work is devoted to developing tools for the visual analysis of tropical cyclones based on satellite data. The implemented system has an extensible set of algorithms for the loading, processing and visualization of data, mainly the spatial scalar fields. The well-known algorithms and author’s developments using CUDA technology, and shaders were used in creation […]

The Discrete Wavelet Transform (DWT) is applied to various signal and image processing applications. However the computation is computational expense. Therefore plenty of approaches have been proposed to accelerate the computation. Graphics processing units (GPUs) can be used as stream processor to speed up the calculation of the DWT. In this paper, we present a […]

The Discrete Wavelet Transform (DWT) is used in several signal and image processing applications. Due to the computational expense various approaches have been proposed. One approach is using graphics processing units (GPUs) as stream processors to speed up the calculation of the DWT. This paper presents a GPU implementation of the translation-invariant wavelet transform computed […]

Modern graphic cards enable applications to process big amounts of graphical data faster than CPUs, allowing high-volume parallelizable data to be visualized in real-time. In this paper, we present an approach to enable a power grid planning Computer-Aided-Design application to use this processing power to visualize electrical distribution grids in the fastest possible way. As […]

This paper presents the latest research and developments in Modular Technology. That is, the optimized repetition of the same geometry or module, for the generation of large virtual environments for the simulators that are designed by CITEF. The current trend is on redirecting the maximum possible share of graphical calculation to the GPU to lighten […]

With the advances in the processor technology, todaypsilas graphical processing unit (GPU) architectures have evolved tremendously. Their speed and computational power has increased to the giga-flops levels. This has brought about a new architectural innovation called Shaders, which are programmable processing units that make all of the resources of the GPUs available to the game […]

The automotive industry is aggressively moving from physical prototyping to virtual prototyping.This trend is imperative for staying competitive in an industry that faces many challenges. The industry has recognized that simulation in key disciplines such as crash worthiness, noise and vibration, and fluid mechanics has matured to a high level. The decision is, no longer […]

ID shadow-maps are used for robust real-time rendering of shadows. The primary disadvantage of using shadow-maps is their excessive size for large scenes in case high quality shadows are needed. To eliminate large memory requirements and texture-size limitations of the current generation GPUs, texture compression is an important tool. We present a framework where compressed […]

Our work describes the simulation of a planar network of spiking I/F neurons on graphics processing hardware. The described approach adds to the fast-growing field of general-purpose computation on GPUs (GPGPU). We provide an in-depth explanation of the steps involved in implementing the network using programmable shading hardware. We replicated simulation results by Hopfield et […]

Due to the explosive market growth in computer gaming, the underlying technology of Graphical Processor Units is also exploding in terms of new capabilities and raw processing power. While the primary target of the growth in GPU capabilities is computer games, computer-aided design applications stand to gain substantial benefits as well. This paper outlines the […]

GPU shaders seem used mostly for gaming and other forms of entertainment and simulation. But they have less-obvious visualization uses, for the same reasons that interest the gaming community: improved appearance and performance. This column looks at the use of shaders and the OpenGL shading language (GLSL) in two common visualization applications: point clouds 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: 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
