The study sheds light on the challenges faced by developers aspiring to produce next-generation applications and games leveraging the full power of GPUs. The study was conducted by running over 18,000 test cases on 17 devices containing 12 different GPUs from five different vendors.    Read More

Amazon launches new EC2 GPU instances for high-performance 3D Graphics in the cloud

• Tags:

Amazon launched a new type of instance for its EC2 cloud computing platform that is specifically designed for applications that require 3D graphics capabilities. Using these new instances, Amazon argues, its users can now “build high-performance DirectX, OpenGL, CUDA, and OpenCL applications and services without making expensive up-front capital investments.” Amazon is making two of these new GPU instance types available for now. The g2.2xlarge version comes with 15 GB memory, 60 GB of local storage, 26 EC2 Compute Units (that’s an Intel Sandy Bridge processor running at 2.6 GHz) and a single NVIDIA Kepler GK104 graphics card (with 1536 CUDA cores). The larger cg1.4xlarge version comes with 22 GB of memory, 1690 GB of local storage, 33.5 EC2 Compute Units and two NVIDIA Tesla “Fermi” M2050 GPUs.   Read More
