Now-a-days, Graphics Processing Unit (GPU), as a kind of massive parallel processor, has been widely used in general purposed computing tasks. Although there have been mature development tools, it is not a trivial task for programmers to write GPU programs. Based on this consideration, the authors propose a novel parallel computing architecture. The architecture includes a parallel programming model, named Gemma, and a programming framework, named April. Gemma is based on generalized matrix operations, and helps to alleviate the difficulty of describing parallel algorithms. April is a high-level framework that can compile and execute tasks described in Gemma with OpenCL.
