The paper tackles important technical aspects that can affect the overall performance of a CUDA application such as: the optimal alignment in memory of the data that is to be processed, obtaining optimal memory access patterns that facilitate the retrieving of instructions; aligning to the L1 cache line according to its size, taking into account the balance achieved between single or double precision and the effect on how much memory is being used; joining more kernel functions into a single one in certain situations, benefiting from the increased speedup offered by putting into use the shared and cache memory, adjusting the code to the available memory bandwidth by taking into account the memory latency and the need to transfer data between the host and the device.
