API dispatch table and stream shape

Here is a table that connects:

  • virtual machine operation bytecodes
  • PeakStream API function points
  • CPU back-end
  • stream shape
  • computational graph

The most basic JIT optimization is finding subgraphs with homogeneous stream shape (multiple consecutive loops that can be fused together into a single loop). These subgraphs correspond to synthesized compute kernels for the GPU. That’s important as kernel scheduling overhead is very high for GPUs. Minimizing the number of kernels scheduled can have a dramatic effect on performance (my experience is about 5x higher dense matrix multiply throughput on an ATI Radeon HD 5870 in double precision).
