Due to many factors such as, high transistor density, high frequency, and low voltage, today’s processors are more than ever subject to hardware failures. These errors have various impacts depending on the location of the error and the type of processor. Because of the hierarchical structure of the compute units and work scheduling, the hardware […]

The main objective of this paper is to speed up the simulation performance of SystemC designs at the RTL abstraction level by exploiting the high degree of parallelism afforded by today’s general purpose graphics processors (GPGPUs). Our approach parallelizes SystemC’s discrete-event simulation (DES) on GPGPUs by transforming the model of computation of DES into a […]

GPUs are now considered as serious challengers for high-performance computing solutions. They have power consumptions up to 300 W. This may lead to power supply and thermal dissipation problems in computing centers. In this article we investigate, using measurements, how and where modern GPUs are using energy during various computations in a CUDA environment.

Physical and engineering practicalities involved in microprocessor design have resulted in flat performance growth for traditional single-core microprocessors. The urgent need for continuing increases in the performance of scientific applications requires the use of many-core processors and accelerators such as graphics processing units (GPUs). This paper discusses GPU acceleration of the multilevel summation method for […]
