Webinar: Essential CUDA Optimization Techniques
When: October 15, 2014 9:00 AM - 10:00 AM PST
What: Join Chris Mason, Product Manager at Acceleware, and learn how to optimize your algorithms for NVIDIA GPUs. This informative webinar will provide an overview of the improved analysis performance tools available in CUDA 6.0 and key optimization strategies for compute, latency and memory bound problems. The webinar will include techniques for ensuring peak utilization of CUDA cores by choosing the optimal block size. For compute bound algorithms Chris will discuss how to improve branching efficiency, intrinsic functions and loop unrolling. For memory bound algorithms, optimal access patterns for global and shared memory will be presented including a comparison between the Fermi and Kepler architectures.
