Programming Massively Parallel Processors discusses basic concepts about parallel programming and GPU architecture. ""Massively parallel"" refers to the use of a large number of processors to perform a set of computations in a coordinated parallel way. The book details various techniques for constructing parallel programs. It also discusses the development process, perform ...more

A somewhat light overview of nVidia's GPU architecture and CUDA programming model.

The explanation of GPU architecture was clear if somewhat vague. Given that the whole book was focused on the GT200 series, and they referenced the GTX 295 specifically, I wish they had given exact latency numbers for the memory hierarchy and other hardware features as motivation for why you would do all the backflips necessary to fit your problem effectively into the cuda model. There are a few log-log graphs in t

This book provides enough information to start develop programs using CUDA technology. Besides CUDA specific information, it explains how to design algorithms for massively parallel hardware, how to optimize performance, and provides detailed description of two tasks, implemented on GPU. There is also a chapter, that provides short overview of OpenCL technology

Useful explanations of how CUDA programming works. Nice to see more examples and depth than the software documentation. Would like to have seen mention of using the texture memory and associated functions, which were entirely absent.

Taught be some about the different memory model issues that can arrise with CUDA. This book asn't put together well. Most of the chapters seemed to spend a couple pages setting the stage as if they all originally stood alone.

Reading the book with the offered course on Coursera will be a very good start. It is written in a very simple way and good for beginners. little bit general but good enough.
