  • Abstract This is a simulator created base on Attila, a modern GPU architecture and open source project with the power to run games and benchmarks. This simulator has been modified in order to support OpenGL ES 2.0 and GLSL ES compilation and execution. As such, it is an important extension of the Attila simulator. In addition, the compiler is designed for the NSYSU GPU architecture, which allows the verifying of the code produced by our GLSL ES shader compiler. This simulator was also created to enable future research, by providing the ability to record statistic data from running real world applications and then use these data to make profile assisted compiler optimizations.
    Along with the simulator is a NSYSU GPU to Attila simulator converter. This converter consist two parts of the conversion, one is the API converter and another is the assembly converter. The converter solves data linking problems for attribute, uniform and varying data, which occur when adapting the Attila simulator to use NSYSU GLSL compiler assembly. Compared to the NSYSU GPU's current SystemC simulator, the new Attila simulator is 300 to 2000 times faster. It also avoids the necessities to precompute input to the simulator for system-wise simulation. These benefits are necessary for simulating non-trivial applications.
