Floating point precision and performance and the ratio of floating point units to integer processing elements on a graphics processing unit accelerator all continue to present complex tradeoffs for optimising core utilisation on modern devices. We investigate various hybrid CPU and GPU combinations using a range of different GPU models occupying different points in this tradeoff space. We analyse some performance data for a range of numerical simulation kernels and discuss their use as benchmark problems for characterising such devices.
