Overcoming Limitations of GPGPU-Computing in Scientific Applications

The performance of discrete general purpose graphics processing units (GPGPUs) has been improving at a rapid pace. The PCIe interconnect that controls the communication of data between the system host memory and the GPU has not improved as quickly, leaving a gap in performance due to GPU downtime while waiting for PCIe data transfer. In this article, we explore two alternatives to the limited PCIe bandwidth, NVIDIA NVLink interconnect, and zero-copy algorithms for shared memory Heterogeneous System Architecture (HSA) devices. The OpenCL SHOC benchmark suite is used to measure the performance of each device on various scientific application kernels.
