Preparing codes for LUMI: converting CUDA applications to HIP – In the first blog post “May we introduce: LUMI” we discussed the LUMI high-level specifications, the software stack and what programming models could be used to get your GPU accelerated codes running on the system. In this article we are going do a deeper dive on HIP which is AMDs direct answer to CUDA. As there are a lot of existing GPU applications using CUDA we need a way to translate these to run on LUMI, and in this article we will discuss the steps needed for that. >Learn more
