In this series of modules, you'll learn how to build essential skills in developing HIP applications. The focus is on supercomputing generally AND specifically with Pawsey's Setonix supercomputer.
The Heterogeneous Interface for Portability (HIP) provides a programming framework for harnessing the compute capabilities of multicore processors, such as the MI250X GPU’s on Setonix.
This series is led by Dr. Toby Potter, Pelagos Consulting, in collaboration with the specialists of the Pawsey Supercomputing Research Centre.
|OpenCL Workshop||2023||Supercomputing||Core||Supercomputers make use of accelerators from a variety of different hardware vendors, using devices such as multi-core CPU’s, GPU’s and even FPGA’s. OpenCL is a way for your HPC application to make effective use of heterogeneous computing devices, and to avoid code refactoring for new HPC infrastructure. Topics covered in this course are : |
- Introduction to OpenCL
- How to build and run applications on Setonix with OpenCL and MPI
- Matrix multiplication with OpenCL – fully explained line by line
- How to debug OpenCL applications and kernels
- Measure performance with OpenCL Events and open source tools
- Memory management
- Coarse and fine-grained shared memory
