Webinar What’s new and exciting about Graham’s GPU

Jump to navigationJump to search

The newest and largest SHARCNET cluster, Graham, will shortly become available to Compute Canada users. Among its exciting features is a substantial number (320) of the newest HPC GPUs from NVIDIA, Pascal P100. (The other new National Compute Canada cluster, Cedar, will have 584 Pascal P100 GPUs.) This will be a very significant improvement for SHARCNET users in terms of GPGPU capabilities, both quantitatively (27x more GPU flops than our older GPU cluster, monk) and qualitatively (new GPU capabilities; three generations newer than the monk GPUs). This webinar will discuss all the new important features of the Graham GPUs, with a live demonstration. Some minimum familiarity with GPGPU programming (CUDA or OpenCL) is desirable.
