GPU Task-Parallelism: Primitives and Applications
Abstract:

We explore how a task-parallel model can be implemented on the GPU and address concerns and programming techniques for doing so. We discuss the primitives for building a task-parallel system on the GPU. This includes novel ideas for mapping tasking systems onto the GPU including task granularity, load balancing, memory management, and dependency resolution. We also present several applications which demonstrate how a task-parallel model is more suitable than the regular data parallel model. These applications include a Reyes renderer, tiled deferred lighting renderer, and a video encoding demo.
