  • of the Dissertation Scalar-Vector GPU Architectures by Zhongliang Chen Doctor of Philosophy in Computer Engineering Northeastern University, December 2016 Dr. David Kaeli, Adviser Graphics Processing Units (GPUs) have evolved to become high throughput processors for general purpose data-parallel applications. Most GPU execution exploits a Single Instruction Multiple Data (SIMD) model, where a single operation is performed on multiple data at a time. However, neither runtime or hardware pays… CONTINUE READING
