A vision of heterogeneous computer systems that incorporate diverse
accelerators and automatically select the best computational unit for
a particular task is widely shared amongresearchers and many industry
analysts; however, there are no agreed-upon benchmarks to support the
research needed in the development of such a platform. There are many
suites for parallel computing on general-purpose CPU architectures,
but accelerators fall into a gap that is not covered by current benchmark
suites or benchmark development.

The Rodinia Benchmark Suite

Rodinia is designed for heterogeneous computing infrastructures, and,
using OpenMP and CUDA, targets both GPUs and multicore CPUs.
The suite currently consists of 6 applications and 7 kernels. They have
been parallelized with OpenMP for multicore CPUs and with CUDA for
GPUs. We have been preparing for the OpenCL release.

Current Rodinia applications:

The applications(*) are relatively hard for compilers to analyze and
generate efficient GPU codes.
