As one of the most popular accelerators, Graphics Processing Unit (GPU) has demonstrated high computing power in several application fields. On the other hand, GPU also produces high power consumption and has been one of the most largest power consumers in desktop and supercomputer systems. However, software power optimization method targeted for GPU has(More)
As the system scales up continuously, the problem of power consumption for high performance computing (HPC) system becomes more severe. Heterogeneous system integrating two or more kinds of processors, could be better adapted to heterogeneity in applications and provide much higher energy efficiency in theory. Many studies have shown heterogeneous system is(More)
Edaravone, a free radical scavenger, is the first clinical drug of neuroprotection for ischemic stroke patients in the world, and has been shown to be an effective agent to alleviate cerebral ischemic injury. It has been established that acidosis is a common feature of cerebral ischemia and underlies the pathogenesis of ischemic stroke. In the present(More)

As one of the most popular many-core architecture, GPUs have illustrated power in many non-graphic applications. Traditional general purpose computing systems tend to integrate GPU as the co-processor to accelerate parallel computing tasks. Meanwhile, GPUs also result in high power consumption, which accounts for a large proportion of the total system power(More)
Graphic Processing Unit (GPU), with many light-weight data-parallel cores, can provide substantial parallel computing power to accelerate several general purpose applications. Both the AMD and NVIDIA corps provide their specific high performance GPUs and software platforms. As the floating-point computing capacity increases continually, the problem of(More)
Interconnection network plays an important role in scalable high performance computer (HPC) systems. The TH Express-2 interconnect has been used in MilkyWay-2 system to provide high-bandwidth and low-latency interprocessor communications, and continuous efforts are devoted to the development of our proprietary interconnect. This paper describes the(More)
GPUs render higher computing unit density than contemporary CPUs and thus exhibit much higher power consumption despite its higher power efficiency. The power consumption has become an important issue that impacts GPU's applications, thereby necessitating the low power optimization technology for GPUs. Software prefetching is an efficient way to alleviate(More)
The memory access limits the performance of stream processors. By exploiting the reuse of data held in the Stream Register File (SRF), an on-chip storage, the number of memory accesses can be reduced. In current stream compilers reuse is only attempted for simple stream references, those whose start and end are known. Compiler analysis from outside of(More)
Stream processors, developed for the stream programming model, perform well on media applications. In this paper we examine the applicability of a stream processor to scientific computing applications. Eight scientific applications, each having different performance characteristics, are mapped to a stream processor. Due to the novelty of the stream(More)
