As graphics processing units (GPUs) are becoming increasingly popular for general purpose workloads (GPGPU), the question arises how such processors will evolve architecturally in the near future. In this work, we identify and discuss tradeoffs for three GPU architecture parameters: active thread count, compute-memory ratio, and cluster and warp sizing. For… CONTINUE READING
