Resumen: Nowadays, there is a lack of performance models for the execution of programs implemented using the CUDA model for GPU (Graphics Processing Units) devices. We have designed and implemented a suite of micro-benchmarks, called uBench. The purpose of uBench is to identify the effects on performance derived from the combination of: (1) the hardware details of each GPU device, and (2) the conguration of the threadBlock, an important runtime conguration parmeter in the CUDA programming model.
