GPUDirect support for RDMA provides low latency interconnectivity between NVIDIA GPUs and various networking, storage, & FPGA devices. This white paper will include how CUDA 5 technology increases GPU autonomy and promotes multi-GPU topologies with high GPU-to-CPU ratios. In addition to improved bandwidth and latency, the resulting increase in GFLOPS/watt poses a significant impact to both HPC & embedded applications. We will dig into scalable PCIe switch hierarchies, as well as software infrastructure to manage device interoperability & GPUDirect streaming.
