In recent years, there has been a drive towards parallel architectures to further increase computational performance. The many-core architecture of modern Graphics Processing Units (GPU) can be used for general computations in addition to graphics processing, and provide good performance for data parallel computations. In this thesis, we explore the processing powers of two generations of GPUs by implementing H.264 prediction algorithms. We have implemented motion vector search and motion vector prediction on the GPU, and discuss how they to the parallel architecture.
