Product Description

Review

It wasn't until recently that parallel [GPU] computing made people realize that there are whole areas in computing science that we can tackle. . When you can do something 10 or 100 times faster, something magical happens and you can do something completely different. -Jen-Hsun Huang, CEO, NVIDIA

Product Description

GPU Computing Gems, Jade Edition describes successful application experiences in GPU computing and the techniques that contributed to that success. Divided into five sections, the book explains how GPU execution is achieved with algorithm implementation techniques and approaches to data structure layout. More specifically, it considers three general requirements: high level of parallelism, coherent memory access by threads within warps, and coherent control flow within warps.
This book begins with an overview of parallel algorithms and data structures. The first few chapters focus on accelerating database searches, how to leverage the Fermi GPU architecture to further accelerate prefix operations, and GPU implementation of hash tables. The reader is then systematically walked through the fundamental optimization steps when implementing a bandwidth-limited algorithm, GPU-based libraries of numerical algorithms and software products for numerical analysis with dedicated GPU support, and the adoption of GPU computing techniques in production engineering simulation codes. The next chapters discuss the state of GPU computing in interactive physics and artificial intelligence, programming tools and techniques for GPU computing, and the edge and node parallelism approach for computing graph centrality metrics. The book also proposes an alternative approach that balances computation regardless of node degree variance.
This book will be useful to application developers in a wide range of application areas.

  • This second volume of GPU Computing Gems offers 100% new material of interest across industry, including finance, medicine, imaging, engineering, gaming, environmental science, green computing, and more
  • Covers new tools and frameworks for productive GPU computing application development and offers immediate benefit to researchers developing improved programming environments for GPUs
  • Even more hands-on, proven techniques demonstrating how general purpose GPU computing is changing scientific research
  • Distills the best practices of the community of CUDA programmers; each chapter provides insights and ideas as well as 'hands on' skills applicable to a variety of fields

2.0 out of 5 stars Not something I have much use for 20 Mar 2013
By milesrf - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Bought on the author's recommendation. It appears to contain little that I currently have a use for, though. Many items I don't have a use for, though.
