GPU Accelerated Scientific Computing: Evaluation of the NVIDIA Fermi Architecture; Elementary Kernels and Linear Solvers
AbstractThis paper evaluates the latest GPU generation from NVIDIA, called "Fermi", with respect to the previous generation. The experiments include benchmarks of elementary kernels as well as of linear solvers applied to problems arising in the area of computational fluid dynamics. Both the consumer version of the hardware (GeForce GTX 480 and GTX 280) as well as the professional line (Tesla C2050 and C1060) are taken into account.
The Engineering Mathematics and Computing Lab (EMCL), directed by Prof. Dr. Vincent Heuveline, is a research group at the Interdisciplinary Center for Scientific Computing (IWR).
The EMCL Preprint Series contains publications that were accepted for the Preprint Series of the EMCL and are planned to be published in journals, books, etc. soon.
The EMCL Preprint Series was published under the roof of the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) until April 30, 2013. As from May 01, 2013 it is published under the roof of Heidelberg University.
