This report aims to provide a beginner’s introduction to GPUs, from both a hardware and a software angle. We look at the evolution of specialist graphics hardware from the early days of PC graphics cards to the present day. We describe the currently available hardware from NVIDIA and AMD/ATI, and the current software from both the OpenGL family (GLSL) and the Direct3D family (HLSL). We also include non-graphics APIs such as CUDA. The report ends with a look ahead to the future including GPU clusters and the Larrabee architecture.
