  • ArrayFire

    ArrayFire: a general purpose GPU library.

    Project mention: Learn WebGPU | news.ycombinator.com | 2023-04-27

    Loads of people have stated why easy GPU interfaces are difficult to create, but we solve many difficult things all the time.

    Ultimately I think CPUs are just satisfactory for the vast vast majority of workloads. Servers rarely come with any GPUs to speak of. The ecosystem around GPUs is unattractive. CPUs have SIMD instructions that can help. There are so many reasons not to use GPUs. By the time anyone seriously considers using GPUs they're, in my imagination, typically seriously starved for performance, and looking to control as much of the execution details as possible. GPU programmers don't want an automagic solution.

    So I think the demand for easy GPU interfaces is just very weak, and therefore no effort has taken off. The amount of work needed to make it as easy to use as CPUs is massive, and the only reason anyone would even attempt to take this on is to lock you in to expensive hardware (see CUDA).

    For a practical suggestion, have you taken a look at https://arrayfire.com/ ? It can run on both CUDA and OpenCL, and it has C++, Rust and Python bindings.

  • SHADERed

    Lightweight, cross-platform & full-featured shader IDE

    Project mention: Confused in terms of where to start with framework/technology etc. Need help picking between learning ShaderToy v/s OpenGL v/s WebGL | /r/GraphicsProgramming | 2023-06-20

    If you specifically want to learn shader programming then https://shadered.org/ is a lot more practical than Shadertoy.

  • AdaptiveCpp

    Implementation of SYCL and C++ standard parallelism for CPUs and GPUs from all vendors: The independent, community-driven compiler for C++-based heterogeneous programming models. Lets applications adapt themselves to all the hardware in the system - even at runtime!

    Project mention: What Every Developer Should Know About GPU Computing | news.ycombinator.com | 2023-10-21

    Sapphire Rapids is a CPU.

    AMD's primary focus for a GPU software ecosystem these days seems to be implementing CUDA with s/cuda/hip, so AMD directly supports and encourages running GPU software written in CUDA on AMD GPUs.

    The only implementation for sycl on AMD GPUs that I can find is a hobby project that apparently is not allowed to use either the 'hip' or 'sycl' names. https://github.com/AdaptiveCpp/AdaptiveCpp

  • vulkan_minimal_compute

    Minimal Example of Using Vulkan for Compute Operations. Only ~400LOC.

    Project mention: Vulkan for Image Processing? Good choice? | /r/vulkan | 2022-12-20
  • VexCL

    VexCL is a C++ vector expression template library for OpenCL/CUDA/OpenMP

  • cuda-api-wrappers

    Thin C++-flavored header-only wrappers for core CUDA APIs: Runtime, Driver, NVRTC, NVTX.

    Project mention: VUDA: A Vulkan Implementation of CUDA | news.ycombinator.com | 2023-07-01

    1. This implements the clunky C-ish API; there's also the Modern-C++ API wrappers, with automatic error checking, RAII resource control etc.; see: https://github.com/eyalroz/cuda-api-wrappers (due disclosure: I'm the author)

    2. Implementing the _runtime_ API is not the right choice; it's important to implement the _driver_ API, otherwise you can't isolate contexts, dynamically add newly-compiled JIT kernels via modules etc.

    3. This is less than 3000 lines of code. Wrapping all of the core CUDA APIs (driver, runtime, NVTX, JIT compilation of CUDA-C++ and of PTX) took me > 14,000 LoC.

    > but all the alternatives require significant redesign in languages and tools people are unfamiliar with and we can't afford that overhead

    Where I work, we've made it a principle to stay OpenCL-compatible even while going with NVIDIA due to their better-performing GPUs. I even go as far as writing kernels that can be compiled as either CUDA C++ or OpenCL-C, with a bit of duct-tape adapter headers:



    of course, if you're working with higher-level frameworks then it's more difficult, and you depend on whether or not they provided different backends. So, no thrust for AMD GPUs, for example, but pytorch and TensorFlow do let you use them.
