The high performance computing landscape is shifting from collections of homogeneous nodes towards heterogeneous systems, in which nodes consist of a combination of traditional out-of-order execution cores and accelerator devices. Accelerators, built around GPUs, many-core chips, FPGAs or DSPs, are used to offload compute-intensive tasks. The advent of this… CONTINUE READING
