hipFFT Overview

hipFFT Overview#

hipFFT is a GPU FFT marshalling library that supports either rocFFT or cuFFT as the backend.

hipFFT exports an interface that does not require the client to change, regardless of the chosen backend. It sits between the application and the backend FFT library, marshalling inputs into the backend and results back to the application.

The basic usage pattern is:

  • Create a transform plan (once)

  • Perform (many) transforms using the plan

  • Destroy the plan when finished
