Fabric Engine: Why HSA is Invaluable

  1. 1. WHY HSA IS INVALUABLE |The Fabric Engine CasePAUL DOYLE
  2. 2. WHY HSA IS INVALUABLE |The Fabric Engine Case  A high-performance, multithreaded computational engine  Easy to use  Integrates with simple, dynamic languages (Python, JS)  Uses Fabric’s own high-level language (KL) for performance sensitive algorithms  Yields performance comparable to / better than multithreaded C++
  3. 3. WHY HSA IS INVALUABLE | The FabricEngine Case Makes high-performance computing highly accessible
  4. 4. WHY HSA IS INVALUABLE | The FabricEngine Case Without HSA, extending Fabric to run on GPU would mean:  Restricting Fabric’s KL language to mark which language features can or cannot be used when code is intended to run on GPU  Extending Fabric to expose memory management interfaces to copy to and from GPU memory  Putting the burden on the user to minimize those copies  (also, understanding the intricacies of every platform)
  5. 5. WHY HSA IS INVALUABLE | The FabricEngine Case On GPU, without HSA, Makes high-performance computing highly accessible … misses the point.
  6. 6. WHY HSA IS INVALUABLE | The FabricEngine Case With HSA, Makes high-performance computing highly accessible:  CPU functions can be called from code running on GPU;  The user does not worry about where memory location;  Fabric Engine still compiles to LLVM bytecode
