  3. 3. Introduction of GPU • A Graphics Processing Unit (GPU) is a microprocessor that has been designed specifically for the processing of 3D graphics. • The processor is built with integrated transform, lighting, triangle setup/clipping, and rendering engines, capable of handling millions of math-intensive processes per second. • GPUs form the heart of modern graphics cards, relieving the CPU (central processing units) of much of the graphics processing load. GPUs allow products such as desktop PCs, portable computers, and game consoles to process real-time 3D graphics that only a few years ago were only available on high-end workstations. • Used primarily for 3-D applications, a graphics processing unit is a single-chip processor that creates lighting effects and transforms objects every time a 3D scene is redrawn. These are mathematically-intensive tasks, which otherwise, would put quite a strain on the CPU. Lifting this burden from the CPU frees up cycles that can be used for other jobs. 3
  4. 4. Performance Factors Of GPU • Fill Rate: It is defined as the number of pixels or texels (textured pixels) rendered per second by the GPU on to the memory . It shows the true power of the GPU. Modern GPUs have fill rates as high as 3.2 billion pixels. The fill rate of a GPU can be increased by increasing the clock given to it. • Memory Bandwidth: It is the data transfer speed between the graphics chip and its local frame buffer. More bandwidth usually gives better performance with the image to be rendered is of high quality and at very high resolution. • Memory Management: The performance of the GPU also depends on how efficiently the memory is managed, because memory bandwidth may become the only bottle neck if not managed properly. • Hidden Surface removal: A term to describe the reducing of overdraws when rendering a scene by not rendering surfaces that are not visible. This helps a lot in increasing performance of GPU. 4
  5. 5. GPU Pipeline • The GPU receives geometry information from the CPU as an input and provides a picture as an output • The host interface is the communication bridge between the CPU and the GPU • It receives commands from the CPU and also pulls geometry information from system memory. • It outputs a stream of vertices in object space with all their associated information (normals, texture coordinates, per vertex color etc) • The vertex processing stage receives vertices from the host interface in object space and outputs them in screen space • This may be a simple linear transformation, or a complex operation involving morphing effects host interface vertex processing triangle setup pixel processing memory interface
  6. 6. Cont.. • A fragment is generated if and only if its center is inside the triangle • Every fragment generated has its attributes computed to be the perspective correct interpolation of the three vertices that make up the triangle • Each fragment provided by triangle setup is fed into fragment processing as a set of attributes (position, normal, texcord etc), which are used to compute the final color for this pixel Before the final write occurs, some fragments are rejected by the zbuffer, stencil and alpha tests 6

  8. 8. Cont.. • Allow shader to be applied to each vertex Transformation and other per vertex ops • Allow vertex shader to fetch texture data • Cull/clip–per primitive operation and data preparation for rasterization • Rasterization: primitive to pixel mapping • Z culling: quick pixel elimination based on Depth • Fragment : a candidate pixel Varying number of pixel pipelines • SIMD processing hides texture fetch latency 8
  9. 9. Introduction Of CUDA 9 •CUDA aka Compute unified device architecture is parallel computing platform and programing model which is implemented by graphics processing unit.
  10. 10. CUDA Programming Model: A Highly Multithreaded Coprocessor • The GPU is viewed as a compute device that:  Is a coprocessor to the CPU or host  Has its own DRAM (device memory)  Runs many threads in parallel • Data-parallel portions of an application are executed on the device as kernels which run in parallel on many threads • Differences between GPU and CPU threads  GPU threads are extremely lightweight  Very little creation overhead  GPU needs 1000s of threads for full efficiency  Multi-core CPU needs only a few
  11. 11. Thread Batching: Grids and Blocks •A kernel is executed as a grid of thread blocks –All threads share data memory space •A thread block is a batch of threads that can cooperate with each other by: –Synchronizing their execution •For hazard-free shared memory accesses –Efficiently sharing data through a low latency shared memory •Two threads from two different blocks cannot cooperate Host Kernel 1 Kernel 2 Device Grid 1 Block (0, 0) Block (1, 0) Block (2, 0) Block (0, 1) Block (1, 1) Block (2, 1) Grid 2 Block (1, 1) Thread (0, 1) Thread (1, 1) Thread (2, 1) Thread (3, 1) Thread (4, 1) Thread (0, 2) Thread (1, 2) Thread (2, 2) Thread (3, 2) Thread (4, 2) Thread (0, 0) Thread (1, 0) Thread (2, 0) Thread (3, 0) Thread (4, 0) Courtesy: NDVIA
  12. 12. Block and Thread IDs •Threads and blocks have IDs –So each thread can decide what data to work on –Block ID: 1D or 2D –Thread ID: 1D, 2D, or 3D •Simplifies memory •addressing when processing •multidimensional data –Image processing –Solving PDEs on volumes Device Grid 1 Block (0, 0) Block (1, 0) Block (2, 0) Block (0, 1) Block (1, 1) Block (2, 1) Block (1, 1) Thread (0, 1) Thread (1, 1) Thread (2, 1) Thread (3, 1) Thread (4, 1) Thread (0, 2) Thread (1, 2) Thread (2, 2) Thread (3, 2) Thread (4, 2) Thread (0, 0) Thread (1, 0) Thread (2, 0) Thread (3, 0) Thread (4, 0) Courtesy: NDVIA

  21. 21. The Future Scope Of CUDA Technology • Currently most of research is going on general purpose GPU. As GPU have a highly- efficient and flexible parallel programmable features, a growing number of researchers and business organizations started to use some of the non-graphical rendering with GPU to implement the calculations, and create a new field of study: GPGPU (General-Purpose computation on GPU) and its objective is to use GPU to implement more extensive scientific computing. GPGPU has been successfully used in algebra, fluid simulation, database applications, spectrum analysis, and other non- graphical applications • Region-based Software Virtual Memory (RSVM), a software virtual memory running on both CPU and GPU in a distributed and cooperative way. • Size reduction • Cooling technique 21
