This course gives an overview on the GPUs .These devices, originally designed for graphics applications, accelerate the calculation of the computational core of HPC applications.
The attendees will be introduced to the basic concepts of the language, the main features of this programming model and to the performance tuning. The course is mainly focused on the CUDA (Compute Unified Device Architecture) programming language, but some introductory notes on OpenCL, OpenACC as well as brief overview on other types of accelerators (Intel MIC) will be given.
