In this paper we implement histogram computations on a Graphics Processing Unit (GPU). Our Histogram computations is implemented using compute unified device architecture (CUDA) which is a minimal extension to C/C++. In this development Histogram computations, computed on GPU’s global memory as well as on shared memory. We also perform Histogram computations on CPU and consider it as a baseline performance. Experimental results demonstrate that shared memory in GPU gives seven times speedup over our baseline CPU.
