Analysis of Hardware Usage Of Shuffle Instruction Based Performance Optimization in the Blinds-II Image Quality Assessment Algorithm


Abstract With the advent of GPGPU, many applications are being accelerated by using CUDA programing paradigm. We are able to achieve around 10x -100x speedups by simply porting the application on to the GPU and running the parallel chunk of code on its multi cored SIMT (Single instruction multiple thread) architecture. But for optimal performance it is necessary to make sure that all the GPU resources are efficiently used, and the latencies in the application are minimized. For this, it is essential to monitor the Hardware usage of the algorithm and thus diagnose the compute and memory bottlenecks in the implementation. In the following thesis, we will be analyzing the mapping of CUDA implementation of BLIINDS-II algorithm on the underlying GPU hard... (more)
