On April 20, 2015 CSCS organized a webinar on the CLE5.2.UP02 and CUDA6.5 upgrade. This is the recording, in case you missed the webinar.
Supercomputers help researchers where experimentation and observation reach their limits. Physicists Jürg Diemand and Raymond Angélil from the University of Zurich use them to detect flaws in theoretical models of phase transitions, for instance. March 23, 2015 – by Simone Ulmer, CSCS When water molecules evaporate from a liquid phase into a gaseous phase, they […]
This webinar video shows how to collect the performance data required for production project proposal at CSCS. In this webinar, it is explained how to use the Craypat analysis tool for hybrid (CUDA, OpenACC) and non hybrid (MPI, OpenMP) high performance parallel computing codes on the Piz Daint system and how to submit a successful […]
Background General-purpose Graphics Processing Units (GPGPUs) potentially offer exceptionally high memory bandwidth and performance for a wide range of applications. The challenge in utilizing such accelerators has been the difficulty in programming them. The OpenACC Directives for Accelerators offers straightforward pragma extensions to C++ and Fortran to address this programming hurdle. Workshop Goal The goal […]
