SpeedIT 2.0 released

February 24th, 2012

SpeedIT 2.0 and the SpeedIT plugin to OpenFOAM have been released. New features include:

  • One of the fastest Sparse Matrix Vector Multiplication worldwide.
  • Faster Conjugate Gradient and BiConjugate Gradient solvers.
  • State-of-the-art CMRS format for storing sparse matrices. The format requires less memory than CRS or HYB (from CUSPARSE and CUSP).
  • Faster acceleration in OpenFOAM (Computational Fluid Dynamics).

More information is available at http://speed-it.vratis.com.

Performance of SpMV in CUSPARSE, CUSP and SpeedIT

January 14th, 2012

The SpeedIt team recently compared and benchmarked the SpMV performance of CUSPARSE 4.0, CUSP 0.2.0 and SpeedIT 2.0 on 23 randomly chosen matrices from University Florida Matrix Collection. Comparisons were done on a Tesla C2050 in single and double precision. The full report is available at http://wp.me/p1ZihD-1.

Introduction to Generic Accelerated Computing with Libra SDK

November 30th, 2011

Libra SDK is a sophisticated runtime including API, sample programs and documentation for massively accelerating software computations. This introduction tutorial provides an overview and usage examples of the powerful Libra API & math libraries executing on x86/x64, OpenCL, OpenGL and CUDA technology. Libra API enables generic and portable CPU/GPU computing within software development without the need to create multiple, specific and optimized code paths to support x86, OpenCL, OpenGL or CUDA devices.

GPU Virtualization for Dynamic GPU Provisioning

November 18th, 2011

From a recent press release:

Taipei, November 18, 2011: Zillians, a leading cloud solution provider specializing in high performance computing, GPU virtualization middleware and massive multi-player online game (MMOG) platforms today announced the availability of vGPU – the world’s first commercial virtualization solution for decoupling GPU hardware from software. Traditionally, physical GPUs must reside on the same machine running GPU code. This severely hampers GPU cloud deployment due to the difficulty of dynamic GPU provisioning. With vGPU technology, bulky hardware is no longer a limiting factor. vGPU introduces a thin, transparent RPC layer between local application and remote GPU, enabling existing GPU software to run without any modification on a remote GPU resource.
