MAGMA 1.1 is now available. This release extends MAGMA 1.0
by providing the following new functionalities:
- Multicore and multi-GPU support;
- Non-GPU-resident LU, QR, and Cholesky factorizations;
- Tile LU, QR, and Cholesky factorizations and solvers with StarPU dynamic scheduling;
- Matrix inversion routines;
- LAPACK testing.
MAGMA 1.1 features hybrid algorithms using both multicore CPUs and multi-GPUs, multiple precision arithmetic support (S/D/C/Z, including mixed precision), top performance and high accuracy. The performance of MAGMA is illustrated below for the case of the LU factorization in double precision - using single GPU (compared to homogeneous multicore CPUs) on the left and using multi-GPUs on the right.
MAGMA 1.1 includes the following routines and functionalities:
