The goal of this workshop is to provide a forum to discuss new and emerging general-purpose purpose programming environments and platforms, as well as evaluate applications that have been able to harness the horsepower provided by these platforms. This year’s work is particularly interested on new heterogeneous GPU platforms.
Intel has broke its silence on its forthcoming Xeon Phi processor which is supposed to hit the shops later this year. They provided the first look inside its Xeon Phi processor in a Hot Chips talk by George Chrysos, chief architect of Knights Corner.
AMD has used the Siggraph 2012 exhibition in Los Angeles to launch four workstation-class graphics cards in its FirePro range. The new line of GPUs and APUs is aimed for users looking for high-end computational and graphics performance.
AMD’s GCN Architecture comes at a time of change for the industry. Graphics is an increasingly important part of the user experience, and a crucial component for SoCs that integrate CPUs and GPU side-by-side. The mandate for GPUs is expanding to include not just 3D rendering, but new general purpose, heterogeneous applications such as facial recognition, which are only feasible using the parallel performance of the GPU.
The IEEE International Conference and Workshops on Cloud Computing Technology and Science, steered by the Cloud Computing Association, aim to bring together researchers who work on cloud computing and related technologies.
Virtex-7 HT devices use Xilinx’s stacked silicon interconnect (SSI) technology to deliver the industry’s highest bandwidth FPGAs, featuring up to sixteen 28 Gbps and seventy-two 13.1 Gbps transceivers
We have investigated the implementation space for parallel global assembly in the finite element method using a variety of GPU platforms and a more traditional CPU architecture.
EPFL has developed and demonstrated a new 3D integration technology that allows stacking of chips vertically rather than side-by-side. Thanks to this technology, computers will be faster, more efficient and capable of carrying out more tasks simultaneously.
