3D-Tech News Around The Web / OpenCL Code Generator Announced
« on: June 02, 2010, 04:10:07 PM »

CAPS, a software company that focuses on manycore development, has announced an OpenCL code generator within the just-released 2.3 version of its HMPP directive-based hybrid compiler.

The CUDA back-end generator has been enhanced with Fermi capabilities and this release brings support for more native compilers with Intel ifort/icc, GNU gcc/gfortran and PGI pgcc/pgfort compilers, enabling developers to freely use their favorite compiler with HMPP 2.3.

Based on GPU programming and tuning directives, HMPP offers an incremental programming model that allows developers with different levels of expertise to fully exploit GPU hardware accelerators in their legacy code.

The OpenCL back-end expands the portfolio of targets supported by HMPP to the AMD ATI GPUs. The OpenCL version of HMPP fully supports AMD and NVIDIA GPU compute processors, bringing to users a wider set of hybrid platforms they can execute their applications on. Recently released, the NVIDIA Tesla 200-series GPUs based on the "Fermi" codename CUDA architecture is also supported by HMPP 2.3.

In this work, we evaluate performance of a real-world image processing application that uses a cross-correlation algorithm to compare a given image with a reference one. The algorithm processes individual images represented as 2-dimensional matrices of single-precision floating-point values using O(n4) operations involving dot-products and additions. We implement this algorithm on a nVidia GTX 285 GPU using CUDA, and also parallelize it for the Intel Xeon (Nehalem) and IBM Power7 processors, using both manual and automatic techniques. Pthreads and OpenMP with SSE and VSX vector intrinsics are used for the manually parallelized version, while a state-of-the-art optimization framework based on the polyhedral model is used for automatic compiler parallelization and optimization. The performance of this algorithm on the nVidia GPU suffers from: (1) a smaller shared memory, (2) unaligned device memory access patterns, (3) expensive atomic operations, and (4) weaker single-thread performance. On commodity multi-core processors, the application dataset is small enough to fit in caches, and when parallelized using a combination of task and short-vector data parallelism (via SSE/VSX) or through fully automatic optimization from the compiler, the application matches or beats the performance of the GPU version. The primary reasons for better multi-core performance include larger and faster caches, higher clock frequency, higher on-chip memory bandwidth, and better compiler optimization and support for parallelization. The best performing versions on the Power7, Nehalem, and GTX 285 run in 1.02s, 1.82s, and 1.75s, respectively. These results conclusively demonstrate that, under certain conditions, it is possible for a FLOP-intensive structured application running on a multi-core processor to match or even beat the performance of an equivalent GPU version.

[Changelog for Afterburner 1.6.0 Beta 6]
- Added voltage control for one more MSI N240GT Low Profile graphics card version
- Added initial NVIDIA GeForce GTX 465 series graphics cards support
- Changed marketing name for MSI R5670-PD512 in hardware database
- Core clock is now used as primary overclocking domain instead of shader clock on GeForce GTX 400
- Unlocked memory downclocking ability on GeForce GTX 400 series
- Default core voltages for NVIDIA GeForce GTX 400 series cards are no longer hardcoded into the database. Now MSI Afterburner uses new NVIDIA driver API to read variable default fused voltages on GeForce GTX 400 series graphics cards. Please take a note that new API reqires updated release 256 drivers, which are not available to public yet. MSI Afterburner will not affect core voltage at all when restoring defaults under curretnly available drivers
- Upper limit for core voltage slider on NVIDIA GeForce GTX 400 series graphics cards has been upped to 1213mV. Please take a note that regular GTX 400 cards will not allow you to go beyond the reference voltage limits (1087mV for GTX 470 and 1138mV for GTX 480) until unlocked BIOS is flashed
- Fixed <Link> button state saving/restoring issue on old NVIDIA cards caused
by introducing Fermi family support
- MSI On-Screen Display server has been upgraded to version 3.7.1. New server improves On-Screen Display 3D rendering mode compatibility with Source engine based games and Star Trek Online and contains updated profiles list


[Changelog for Kombustor 1.08]
- New: added the GPU voltage in the GPU monitoring zone.
- Change: now GPUs indexing follows the same indexing scheme than Afterburner.
- Change: added name of the graphics card in temperature graphs.
- Change: removed the auto-start of Afterburner.
- Bugfix: the benchmarking params group was still grayed.
- Minor bugfixes and changes.

3D-Tech News Around The Web / Intel - Advanced Rendering Techniques
« on: May 29, 2010, 10:09:44 AM »
This article goes further into the details of the varying procedures associated with rendering in Autodesk* Softimage*. Rendering is as nuanced a task as lighting is and incorporates many of the principles covered in previous articles. You don't want to spend hours of effort creating detailed models and precise animation only to create substandard imagery in the final output of your scene, and there are many interrelated parameters and options to consider in this phase of scene creation. As with lighting, rendering is often one of the least-understood aspects of 3D imaging, but it's critical to achieving high-quality animations.

This installment returns to the topic of mixing OpenGL and CUDA C within the same application first introduced in Part 15  of this series. Part 15 demonstrated how to create 2D images with CUDA C on a pixel-by-pixel basis and display them with OpenGL through the use of PBOs (Pixel Buffer Objects).
This article will complete that discussion by demonstrating how to use VBO (Vertex Buffer Objects) to create 3D images with CUDA C and render them using OpenGL as 3D collections of points, wire frame images, and surfaces

3D-Tech News Around The Web / NVIDIA Geforce SLI profile tool
« on: May 28, 2010, 11:58:19 AM »
After updating my display driver, I no longer see NvApps.xml. Did something change?

Yes. In Release 256 and later display drivers, NVIDIA has made some significant enhancements to the infrastructure of the 3D settings in the NVIDIA Control Panel. These infrastructure changes will make the 3D settings and profiles faster and more robust and provide 3rd party developers with full access and control through a new API. The new infrastructure no longer uses XML to store some of the settings like SLI profiles. Instead, all 3D settings and profiles are fully integrated into the new API with support for versioning, Unicode executable names, and improved access performance. This now includes not just control over DirectX settings, but also OpenGL and CUDA settings. Instead of editing NvApps.xml, we have created a simple tool that enables SLI customers to export their SLI profiles to a text file, edit them, and then import them back into the driver.

3D-Tech News Around The Web / NVIDIA Geforce SSAA tool
« on: May 28, 2010, 11:54:33 AM »
In the launch drivers for GeForce GTX 400 series GPUs, there was a bug in the Transparency Antialiasing implementation that enabled full-screen supersampling. Is there any way to still get full-screen supersampling in Release 256?
     Yes. Release 256 drivers do fix the implementation of Transparency Antialiasing (TRAA) and now offer up to 25% performance improvements with TRAA enabled. However, since some of our gaming really enthusiasts liked the full-screen supersampling, we have created a tool for users that allows them to enable 2x, 4x, and 8x full-screen supersampling.
