OpenCL at SC15 focus on FPGA

OpenCL at SC15 focus on FPGA

These includ:

Microsoft | Booth: #1319. Microsoft Bing is accelerated using Altera and OpenCL. Ask them for some great technical details.

IBM | Booth: #522. Now Altera joined Intel, IBM’s OpenPower has been left with NVidia for accelerators. OpenCL could revive the initiative. (redis is part of this!)

NEC | Booth: #313. The NEC group has accelerated PostgreSQL with OpenCL.

Open Source OpenCL best FPGA HFT deployment

Open Source OpenCL best FPGA HFT deployment

I got this from an FPGA follower

I thought you might be interested in this journal from Xilinx.

My view on this is simple. I need to develop trading ideas rapidly. I will never have time to hand code the monstrosity of something like OpenCL. Unless there is an intelligent simplified layer built on top of it, I still won’t use it due to it usually being highly constricted. I look at Python as an example on how there are so many options to do something. Same with Java. R unifies everything nice with RStudio but it still has its problems. This why I use my Simulink for rapid trading idea implementation. I will NOT have time to wait it out for some dude to fix a problem in his open source library. Plus we are not even talking about the complex multi threading component within OpenCL.. Maybe I am missing something but I still find Simulink with code generation is the best option I got for potential FPGA deployment.

I could always be wrong based on something I don’t know but this consideration is a long way off!

FPGA Acceleration Using OpenCL for HFT

FPGA Acceleration Using OpenCL for HFT

This is a big a deal. Thanks to Mr FPGA sent over to me! I must say this is the best path for high frequency trading! Do realize you can still use Matlab Simulink to author the trading strategy.

SUMMARY:

You might not have felt it yet, but the software industry has hit a
software performance wall.  Old applications are unable to push through
it, and quite frankly, they are not going to run any faster with new
hardware because they have not been explicitly designed for it.  Thanks
to the efforts of Khronos, software developers have been given a
battering ram called OpenCL to knock that wall down so that OpenCL
enabled applications can continue to scale with new hardware.  OpenCL is
a standard for parallel heterogeneous computing that makes hardware
vendors compete for your business, and helps your software scale again
for years to come.  It also provides a substantial strategic advantage
to startup companies that leverage it.

RELEVANT QUOTE:

“OpenCL offers enormous benefits for the computing community across many
different platforms and markets.   AJ is both a practitioner of
heterogeneous computing and a member of the Khronos OpenCL working group
– and so is perfectly placed to communicate the intricaci

Do you use open source OpenCL with GPU and parallel computing for HFT: Matlab Simulink DotNet FSharp FPGA or GPU

Do you use open source OpenCL with GPU and parallel computing for HFT: Matlab Simulink DotNet FSharp FPGA or GPU

I just entered into a discussion with someone on this topic. Here is the latest from someone on my Meetup group:

( I HAVE REMOVED THE EXTRA INFO AS REQUESTED)

https://quantlabs.net/blog/2011/11/wow-opencl-looks-cool-for-hpc-and-parallel-computing-for-quant-development/

Here are a couple quick sites that are along the lines I was thinking:

http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/best-workstation-graphics-card,3493-26.html

http://www.bittware.com/fpga-dsp-applications/financial

Our options are of course

1. FPGA via Smulink on Matlab thanks to Mr FPGA. Hey where are you by the way?

2. F# out of box for GPU and parallelism

3. Matlab prototyping and discovery via GPU Computing support

Which one would you use? LQ may build onto Open GL with Qt in C++ for Linux. What would you choose?

SYCL 1.2 out – OpenCL and C++ in GPU programmining

From someone on in my Meet grou:

Hi Everyone, The Khronos group has just released the provisional specification of SYCL 1.2, a C++ programming model for OpenCL devices, and is looking for community feedback. AJ Guillon has posted a video that describes the relevance of this spec at: https://blog.ajguillon.com/2014/03/19/sycl-1-2-provisional-standard-released-and-new-video/
