Evaluating the Performance of the hipSYCL toolchain for HPC kernels on NVIDIA V100 GPUs
Author: Authors: Brian Homerding and John Tramm (Argonne National Laboratory)
In this paper, we produce SYCL benchmarks and mini-apps whose performance on the NVIDIA Volta GPU is analyzed. We utilize the RAJA Performance Suite to evaluate the performance of the hipSYCL toolchain, followed by an more detailed investigation of the performance of two HPC mini-apps. We find that the kernel performance from the SYCL kernels compiled directly to CUDA preform at a competitive level with their CUDA counterparts when comparing the straightforward implementations.
