Nvidia/CUDA - applicability and problems by the example

Hans Hacker (LRZ)


As part of the PRACE, a few kernels from the Euroben-benchmark had to be ported to all the available PRACE prototype architectures. This presentation focuses on the Nvidia/CUDA port and gives an overview of the used Nvidia Hardware, the experience with CUDA and the available toolkit. It illustrates the porting effort, various problems and the results by the example with three of those kernels, namely a dense matrix-matrix multiplication, a sparse matrix-vector multiplication and a 1D fast Fourier transformation.
