Features about 'GPU PROCESSING'

December 2010/January 2011

Supersonic scientific software

Not long ago we reported on the latest GPU architecture and predicted that soon the dam would burst with software supporting it. Well, the first wave from developers dominant in their branches is starting to arrive - and given the enormous productivity boosts possible with GPUs, many others are certainly soon to follow. Paul Schreier tries to keep up with this fast-paced sector

The GPU jump

General-purpose graphical processing units (GPGPUs) have been making inroads into HPC applications, but with the release of chips optimised for scientific computations rather than just graphics processing, this branch is poised to make major market inroads. Paul Schreier examines what's behind this upcoming jump in performance, and its implications

A supercomputer chip for every man

While GPUs (graphics processing units) were initially designed to accelerate video and gaming, vendors of science and engineering software are using them to accelerate their code. Paul Schreier looks at the benefits for today and tomorrow
