In this video from the Nvidia Theater at SC14, Christian Trott from Sandia National Lab presents: Designing the Future: How Successful Codesign Helps Shape Hardware and Software Development.

In working to improve future hardware and software for its simulation requirements, Sandia National Laboratories are engaging in co-design efforts with major hardware vendors. In this talk recent improvements influenced by the collaboration with NVIDIA will be discussed. The presentation will in particular focus on newly available experimental C++11 support in CUDA and how this facilitates both more rapid porting of applications to GPUs as well as better exploitation of GPU architecture characteristics. Furthermore, initial performance studies on NVIDIA’s next generation Tesla product line will be presented as well as first impressions of an IBM POWER-8 based GPU cluster.
