“An increasing number of GPU enabled applications are available to the HPC community. The key issues are understanding the enhanced application performance and corresponding increase in power consumption due to GPUs. In most cases these depend on the CPU to GPU ratio and the way GPUs and connected to CPUs. Latest compute node designs allow flexibility to select the number of GPUs and how they are connected CPUs. This offers users a unique opportunity to select the a suitable operating point according to their application characteristics. This talk is about studying the performance vs. power tradeoff on a few common HPC applications.”
