This course will give a deep dive into the AMD Instinct™ GPU architecture and its ROCm™ ecosystem, including the tools to develop or port their HPC or AI application to AMD GPUs. Participants will be introduced to the HIP (Hetero-geneous-computing Interface for Portability) programming language for AMD GPUs, other higher-level GPU languages such as OpenMP, OpenACC, and performance portable languages such as Kokkos. In addition, there will be presentations on other important topics such as GPU-Aware MPI, and Affinity. The AMD tool suite, including the debugger, rocgdb, and the profiling tools rocprof, omnitrace, and omniperf will also be covered. A short introduction will be given into the AMD Machine Learning software stack including PyTorch and Tensorflow and how they have been used in HPC.
After this course, participants will
