White Paper: Breaking Memory Bandwidth Barriers using High Bandwidth Memory FPGA

June 20, 2018: Edinburgh, UK


Abstract:

The release of Virtex Ultrascale+™ High Bandwidth Memory(HBM) FPGA devices, opens up whole new areas of memory bound applications to the benefit of power efficient FPGA acceleration. A recent increasing trend has been to target a variety of memory bound applications to GPU systems, simply because of their significant memory bandwidth advantage over the CPU, and this is despite the application not having any need for the GPUs primary functionality: the very high performance parallel floating point arithmetic. With the advent of FPGAs with similar external memory bandwidth, but much more flexible and higher internal memory bandwidth configurability, more customized and energy efficient accelerated solutions for these problems are now possible.
