  1. Resource Description
    MemtestG80 and MemtestCL are a software-based testers to test for "soft errors" in GPU memory or logic for NVIDIA CUDA-enabled or OpenCL-enabled (of any manufacturer) GPUs. They use a variety of proven test patterns (some custom and some based on Memtest86) to verify the correct operation of GPU memory and logic. They are useful tools to ensure that given GPUs do not produce "silent errors" which may corrupt the results of a computation without triggering an overt error. Haque IS and Pande VS.

In Proceedings of 10th IEEE/ACM International Conference on Cluster, Cloud, and Grid Computing (CCGrid 2010), pp 691-696. Keywords: gpu, memory, reliability, testing
