Improved OpenCL Programmability with clUtil

SESSION: Research Poster Reception

EVENT TYPE: Posters and Electronic Posters

TIME: 5:15PM - 7:00PM

SESSION CHAIR: Torsten Hoefler

AUTHOR(S):Rick Weber, Gregory D. Peterson

ROOM:East Entrance

ABSTRACT:
CUDA was the first GPGPU programming environment to achieve widespread adoption and interest. This API owes much of its success to its highly productive abstraction model while still exposing enough hardware details to achieve high performance. OpenCL sacrifices much of the programmability in its front-end API for portability; while a less productive API than CUDA, it supports many more devices. In this poster, we present clUtil, which aims to reunite OpenCL's portability and CUDA's ease of use via C++11 language features. Furthermore, clUtil supports high-level parallelism motifs, namely a parallel-for loop that can automatically load balance applications onto heterogeneous OpenCL devices.
