We promised that the Kepler-based NVIDIA Tesla K20 GPU – first unveiled in May at the GPU Technology Conference (GTC) – would be the highest-performance processor the HPC industry has ever seen. One reason: support for a technology called “Dynamic Parallelism,” that can speed up a wide range of tasks. Dynamic Parallelism allows the GPU… Read More
Stephen Jones is an engineer in NVIDIA's high-performance computing group, working on the CUDA parallel computing platform and programming model for the GPU. His background is in computational fluid dynamics and plasma physics, and he has worked on CUDA's parallel mathematical libraries, as well as with hardware architects, on system infrastructure and language design. Stephen’s current work is focused on the design of CUDA to better support HPC applications, and the future GPU architectures required to enable it.
