My view-point AMD vs NVIDIA in GPU-Computing

Hello, this will be that subject and please do not take it too much. It is only my personal opinion on the comparison as an associate scientist. And this will be on mainstream level cards opinion, not about the professional segment that is above my budget… highly above, to be honest. I was trying to express my thoughts, and I think I did it right. My opinion is based on the GNU/Linux Continue ReadingMy view-point AMD vs NVIDIA in GPU-Computing

GPU-Computing macOS Big Sur vs iBuntu Lux Sur

Hello, Let’s test this beauty from the last post on… LuxMark ;-). The thing is that I wanted to compare OpenCL. I know that OpenCL in both systems is not working fully right. I found on macOS that (multi-GPU case) clFinish(q) is slow down each time, on iBuntu -cl-fast-relaxed-math cause a black-scenes on Lux Ball… and on Darknet on OpenCL it is more things wrong, but maybe there are my bugs, so… Continue ReadingGPU-Computing macOS Big Sur vs iBuntu Lux Sur

Mac Moria Miner Project Failure

Hello, every failure is a lesson, so let me describe the experiment I did and the story behind it… I dream about the strongest possible GPU-computing macOS. Let’s start with hardware… design, the way it looks like, is not a design, so let’s name it the look and feel ;-). I am sorry to Apple, please forgive me this was only for test and future, again try, to Ph.D. studies. Do not Continue ReadingMac Moria Miner Project Failure

MMM means Mac Moria Miner project

Hello, my dear readers. Today I would like to remind you of a nice viewpoint of Steve Jobs, who I like to learn from, more from the story and public-faced information than from internal people skills… but anyway, here is the short interview I would like to influence you with first. The secret of life is that things around you are made by people no smarter than you, so if you want Continue ReadingMMM means Mac Moria Miner project

GPU-Computing for Vision Recognition Platform as IoT

Hi my dear readers, today I would like to tell you three technical stories. It will be stories with a happy ending… and you know me..? I am not sure if that story happens exactly this way, but the story is true. IoT Idea Story ;-). First of all, you probably know my passion for IoT? And also, as a tool builder, sorry to say, I do not like to buy the Continue ReadingGPU-Computing for Vision Recognition Platform as IoT

DreamPC vs HaniaPC

Hi, today I would like to share some hardware update I did recently. I put in a HaniaPC the new ASUS AMD Radeon RT 6900 XT and I was wonder how it is preforming compared to a Green PC workstation I upgraded in 2019 with 2 x NVidia Titan RTX 24GB VRAM each with NVLink. So are you interested about tests results. I used 3DMark for Microsoft Windows and Geekbench that is Continue ReadingDreamPC vs HaniaPC

The CES 2021 Must to Watch

The most famous CEO on the planet! The best industry winning products “hearts”. The Silicon Game Changer! In short, the must to watch the public announcement on the prestigious CES 2021 conference. I personally cannot wait! Enjoy! p ;).

AMD vs NVIDIA GPU-Battle 2020 Final

Hi, the GPU world market battle of 2020 is a privilege to watch… you probably remember my last post about chess visualized NVIDIA domination. Well, not anymore. Many testers publicly say that Ampere 3090 GPU is very hot, with huge power consumption… Maybe that is why there are on the NVIDIA presentation was took from the oven? I presume if you got lucky and have one, your PC case is like an Continue ReadingAMD vs NVIDIA GPU-Battle 2020 Final

AMD vs NVIDIA GPU-Battle 2020

Hi, what can I say? Is it still possible that AMD wins the GPU market world domination game, but it will be almost impossible after the last NVidia move… what do you think? There is still an option to win A6-A7, but the situation is difficult for AMD Hetman because NVidia Hetman can B5-B6 :). I really enjoyed watching the last NVidia GPU lunch, it is simply amazing and a bit of Continue ReadingAMD vs NVIDIA GPU-Battle 2020

The Multi-GPU-SET Idea

Hello, I am a Ph.D. student in Poland at the Silesian University of Technology. And I wanted to start a general discussion on the classifier on the video stream improvement idea. I called it the “Multi-GPU & Multi-SET” or, in short, the “Multi-GPU-SET” idea. Basically, people use Multi-GPU and the “Syncing” for Convolutional Neural Networks. But nobody, in my opinion, tried multi GPU to classification. So what is it about? Well, it Continue ReadingThe Multi-GPU-SET Idea

GPU OpenCL Fine-Tuning Problem Solution

Hello, after about half-year I at last found the solution of the biggest optimization issue I had so far in the Darknet on OpenCL solution. It was really hard to solve and I even wrote at the AMD Community Post. Today very early morning I post on that post solution that is shown below. CPU CODE THAT INVOKES THE GPU CODE AND USES BOTH GLOBAL AND LOCAL THREAD SPACES! GPU CODE THAT Continue ReadingGPU OpenCL Fine-Tuning Problem Solution

PhD Progress from May 27th 2020 Update Keynote

Hi, This video was recorded today, and it shows in detail my Ph.D. first year of study effects. The first on the planet… Multi-GPU & Multi-SET image classification pattern… so, I wish you the happy watch! Thanks for watching! p ;).

PhD OpenCL Challenges

Hi, today I want to show you code samples for OpenCL that may be important when you start with these amazing graphics cards computing (GPU-computing) library. The goal is to make code as good as possible on any platform that supports OpenCL and on GPUs from AMD, Intel, NVidia, Mali on CPUs from AMD, Intel, ARM. All examples are from the Darknet on OpenCL port I did some time ago. The first Continue ReadingPhD OpenCL Challenges

PhD Progress from March 8th 2020 Update Keynote

This is the status update of my private “after work” progress on Ph.D. studies at the Silesian University in Gliwice, Poland. I think it may interest all AI/ML researchers around the world. Basically, I covered in 30 minutes the Conventional Neural Network (CNN) engine used to classify the objects on video frames. I also cover my implementation of the Darknet on OpenCL that you can find at https://github.com/sowson/darknet including the goal, idea, Continue ReadingPhD Progress from March 8th 2020 Update Keynote
