In general-purpose graphics processing unit (GPGPU) computing, data is processed by concurrent threads execut-ing the same function. This model, dubbed single-instruction/multiple-thread (SIMT), requires programmers to coordinate the synchronous execution of similar opera-tions across thousands of data elements. To alleviate this programmer burden, Gaster… CONTINUE READING
