Today many servers contain 8 or more GPUs. In principle then, scaling an application from one to many GPUs should provide a tremendous performance boost. But in practice, this benefit can be difficult to obtain. There are two common culprits behind poor multi-GPU scaling. The first is that enough parallelism has not been exposed to
