Multi-thread architectures are the current trends for both PCs (multi-core CPUs and GPUs) and game consoles such as the Microsoft Xbox 360 and Sony Playstation 3. GPUs (Graphics Processing Units) have evolved into extremely powerful and flexible processors, allowing its use for processing different data. This advantage can be used in game development to optimize […]

With a bandwidth of 21.6 GB/s, the front side bus (FSB) of the Microsoft Xbox360trade is one of the fastest, commercially available front side bus interfaces in the consumer market. This paper explains the end-to-end system approach used in designing the bus that achieved volume production ramp 18 months after design start. The 90 nm […]

Modern graphics processing units (GPU) are used for much more than simply 3D graphics applications. From machine vision to finite element analysis, CPU’s are being used in diverse applications, collectively called general purpose graphics processor utilization. This paper explores the capabilities and limitations of modern GPU’s and surveys the neural computation technologies that have been […]

This article covers the Xbox 360’s high-level technical requirements, a short system overview, and details of the CPU and the GPU. The Xbox 360 contains an aggressive hardware architecture and implementation targeted at game console workloads. The core silicon implements the product designers’ goal of providing game developers a hardware platform to implement their next-generation […]

A widely available and economic means of increasing the computing power applied to a problem is to use modern graphics processing units (GPUs) for parallel processing. We present a new, optimized general methodology for deploying genetic programming (GP) to the PC, Xbox 360 video game console, and Zune portable media device. This work describes, for […]

Graphics Processing Units (GPUs) are in the process of becoming a major source of computational power for numerical applications. Originally designed for application of time-consuming graphics operations, GPUs are stream processors that implement the SIMD paradigm. The true degree of parallelism of GPUs is often hidden from the user, making programming even more flexible and […]

We describe how to harness the graphics processing abilities of a consumer video game console (Xbox 360) for general programming on graphics processing unit (GPGPU) purposes. In particular, we implement a linear GP (LGP) system to solve classification and regression problems. We conduct inter- and intra-platform benchmarking of the Xbox 360 and PC, using GPU […]

In the arsenal of tools that a computational modeller can bring to bare on the study of cardiac arrhythmias, the most widely used and arguably the most successful is that of an excitable medium, a special case of a reaction-diffusion model. These are used to simulate the internal chemical reactions of a cardiac cell and […]

We present a general method for deploying parallel linear genetic programming (LGP) to the PC and Xbox 360 video game console by using a publicly available common framework for the devices called XNA (for “XNA’s Not Acronymed”). By constructing the LGP within this framework, we effectively produce an LGP “game” for PC and XBox 360 […]

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
