In this paper we describe an implementation of a software transactional memory library for the GPU written in CUDA. We describe the implementation of our transaction mechanism which features both tentative and regular locking along with a contention management policy based on a simple, yet effective, static priority rule called Priority Rule Software Transactional Memory (PR-STM). We demonstrate competitive performance results in comparison with existing STMs for both the GPU and CPU. While GPU comparisons have been studied, to the best of our knowledge we are the first to provide results comparing GPU based STMs with a CPU based STM.
