Optimizing the HPCG Benchmark on GPUs

“Over at the Parallel for All Blog, Everett Phillips and Massimiliano Fatica write that GPUs offer good acceleration on the new HPCG benchmark that has been designed to augment Linpack as a measure of performance for the TOP500. Their GPU porting strategy focused on parallelizing the Symmetric Gauss-Seidel smoother (SYMGS), which accounts for approximately two thirds of the benchmark flops.”
