Heterogeneous Performance Analysis Using Intel® Analysis Tools

When it comes to heterogeneous computing, an essential element of optimized application performance is the ability to offload parts of the code from one hardware unit to another.

Like from a CPU to a GPU.

In this short video, Technical Consulting Engineer Kevin O’Leary demonstrates how two Intel software tools—Intel® Advisor and Intel® VTune™ Profiler—identify the parts of CPU code that are best offloaded to a GPU and predict the latter’s performance … accelerating a workload by 4.4x.
