IGT GPGPU/HPC joint WG Meeting - HMPP Workbench Demonstration

Location IGT Offices, Maskit 4, 5th Floor, Hertzelia

Speaker

Mr. Stephane Bihan, CAPS Enterprises

Abstract

Programming for the GPU architecture and multi-core platforms can be a difficult task. Sometimes it prevents from good utilization of the platform and even programmers entering this field.

For the aid of programmers, automatic tools can simplify most of the work: providing vectorization, parallelism and better register usage of the output.

HMPP Workbench is a framework developed by CAPS Enterprises to help programmers make effective use of multi-core architectures, including the CPU, GPU and other accelerators (FPGA, etc.).

HMPP provides compiler support for both C and FORTRAN environments.

The meeting will present the features of HMPP, including a live demonstration of porting an algorithm to multi-core and GPU environments.
