Description

. 1.Research Goals: My current research goal is to work as part of the Computer Architecture Group with my PhD student, Owen Harrison, on General Purpose Stream Processing on Graphics Hardware. . 2.Methodology: Desktop computer architecture is at a turning point. In the last two years, CPU speeds have nearly stopped increasing and all major CPU manufacturers have announced multi-core, parallel processors. Future performance improvements will predominantly come from parallelism rather than from an ever-increasing uniprocessor clock speed. Commodity graphics processors (GPUs), in contrast, already contain many parallel processing units and are capable of sustaining computation rates greater than ten times that of a modern CPU. The GPU programming model, however, is very different from traditional CPU models. Researchers in the evolving field of general-purpose computation on graphics processors (GPGPU) are actively developing techniques to make the power of GPUs accessible to a wide range of programmers. My present project involves research into the latest developments of graphics hardware and their applicability to non graphics oriented applications. The category of applications which best suit the current graphics hardware implementations are those which follow a stream processing model. This model describes a high level abstraction of processing in which the operating code remains small and relatively consistent, the ratio between the data and code is normally much higher than conventional processing models and memory access is generally sequential or otherwise restricted. Graphics hardware, in particular graphics processing units(GPUs), are evolving rapidly and while following a restricted stream processing framework, are becoming more flexible with each design iteration. GPUs offer a large performance advantage over conventional CPUs when used to execute suitable stream based algorithms. This project investigates stream processing in general and applications or parts thereof which can lend themselves to this model with an aim to better harness the available processing power within the now ubiquitous GPU. The current application area being looked into is cryptography. . 3.Expected Outputs and Publication Plan: Our most recent paper OPTIMISING DATA MOVEMENT RATES FOR PARALLEL PROCESSING APPLICATIONS ON GRAPHICS PROCESSORS has been submitted to PDCN 2007, Parallel and Distributed Computing and Networks and is under review. By the end of this research work we would hope to publish a significant journal article.
