GPU Computing: Massive Inexpensive Parallel Processing with GPUs Challenge Standard CPUs

Home › Uncategorized › GPU Computing: Massive Inexpensive Parallel Processing with GPUs Challenge Standard CPUs By Dick Weisinger GPUs were originally designed to attack very data-intensive graphic processing problems, used for rendering very complex images and for graphics in games and multimedia, and hence their name Graphic Processing Units (GPU).  What makes GPUs so powerful is the massive number of core processors in each device, compared to standard multi-core CPUs that have just a few or a handful of internal cores.  GPU cores are typically slower processors than standard CPU cores but are able to process many threads at once and can accelerate software to over 100 times faster than standard CPUs. The challenge with GPUs and parallel processing is that in order to take full advantage of the GPU…
