17th POP Guest Webinar - Profiling GPU Applications with Nsight Systems

Thursday, September 24, 2020

This live webinar gave an overview of NVIDIA's Nsight profiling tools. It explored how to analyze and optimize the performance of GPU-accelerated applications. Working with a real-world example, it started by identifying high-level bottlenecks, then walked through an analysis-driven process leading to a series of kernel-level optimizations.

The presentation slides are also available here.
