Loop Modifications to Enhance Data-Parallel Performance

When confronted with nested loops, the granularity of the computations that are assigned to threads will directly affect performance. Loop transformations such as splitting and merging nested loops can make parallelization easier and more productive.

Granularity and Parallel Performance

One key to attaining good parallel performance is choosing the right granularity for the application. Granularity is the amount of real work in the parallel task. If granularity is too fine, then performance can suffer from communication overhead.

Expose Parallelism by Avoiding or Removing Artificial Dependencies

Many applications and algorithms contain serial optimizations that inadvertently introduce data dependencies and inhibit parallelism. One can often remove such dependences through simple transforms, or even avoid them altogether through.
