Diving into GPU Programming

In a previous blog, we discussed the performance of different programming models—SYCL, OpenMP, CUDA, and HIP—when applied to Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD). In this article we will delve deeper into these three languages, comparing their pros and cons, installation requirements, and performance using a simple vector addition example. GPU programming CUDA has been the go-to […]

Assessing Computational Fluid Dynamics on GPU Using Portable Languages

Hardware acceleration, especially through Graphics Processing Units (GPUs), is vital for enhancing computational speed and efficiency. GPUs are designed for parallel processing, enabling them to handle multiple data sets simultaneously. This makes them highly efficient at rendering graphics, image processing, and machine learning tasks. In contrast, CPUs process operations sequentially, making GPUs faster at computations.
