Technical Report : GIT-CERCS-09-06 A Characterization and Analysis of GPGPU Kernels

  title={Technical Report : GIT-CERCS-09-06 A Characterization and Analysis of GPGPU Kernels},
  author={Andrew Kerr and Gregory Frederick Diamos and Sudhakar Yalamanchili},
General purpose application development for GPUs (GPGPU) has recently gained momentum as a cost-effective approach for accelerating dataand compute-intensive applications, pushed to the forefront by the introduction of Cbased programming environments such as NVIDIA’s CUDA, [1], OpenCL [2], and Intel’s Ct [3]. While significant effort has been focused on developing and evaluating applications and software tools, comparatively little has been devoted to the analysis and characterization of… CONTINUE READING
