About the author
Michael Andersch
Michael is a Senior GPU architect at NVIDIA, working in the Compute Architecture team to help define NVIDIA’s next-generation GPU architectures to improve performance and programmability for CUDA and OpenCL applications. GPUs have been Michael’s love for a while, as he had a printed block diagram of the architecture of G80, the GPU driving the legendary Geforce 8800 GTX, on his wall at age 16. During his graduate studies at TU Berlin, Michael worked on better cycle-accurate hardware simulators to estimate GPU performance and power so processor designers and GPU programmers are better able to understand and tune the performance of their programs.
