Tesla C2050 versus C1060 on Real MATLAB Applications

John Melonakos Benchmarks 7 Comments

Following our recent Jacket v1.4 Fermi architecture release, many of you requested data comparing the new NVIDIA Fermi-based Tesla C2050 versus the older Tesla C1060. Over the years, AccelerEyes has developed an extensive suite of benchmark MATLAB applications, which are included in every Jacket installation. Using this suite of tests, we compared performance of the C2050 vs C1060 and are pleased to report the results here. We hope this information will be useful to Jacket programmers. All tests were run on the same standard workstation with Jacket 1.4. The only thing that changed was the actual GPU board. In every case the C2050 beat the C1060. Double-precision examples on the Fermi-based board outperformed the older board by 50% in every ...

We are pleased to announce Jacket 1.4, with support for the latest NVIDIA graphics processing units based on the Fermi architecture (Tesla 20-series and GeForce GTX 4xx-series). NVIDIA's release of the Fermi architecture brings with it 448 computational cores, increased IEEE-754 floating-point arithmetic precision, error-correcting memory for reliable computation, and enhanced memory caching mechanisms. Highlights for Jacket 1.4 are as follows: Added support for the NVIDIA Fermi architecture (GTX400 and Tesla C2000 series) Jacket DLA support for Fermi Dramatically improved the performance of Jacket's JIT (Just-In-Time) compilation technology Operations involving random scalar constants do not incur a recompile Removed dependencies on MINGW and NVCC Logical indexing now supported for SUBSREF and SUBSASGN, e.g. B = A(A > x) MTIMES supports ...
