GPU computing is at a tipping point, becoming more widely used in demanding consumer applications and high-performance computing. This article describes the rapid evolution of GPU architectures-from graphics processors to massively parallel many-core multiprocessors, recent developments in GPU computing architectures, and how the enthusiastic adoption of CPU+GPU coprocessing is accelerating parallel applications.
The graphics processing unit (GPU) has become an integral part of today’s mainstream computing systems. Over the past six years, there has been a marked increase in the performance and capabilities of GPUs. The modern GPU is not only a powerful graphics engine but also a highly parallel programmable processor featuring peak arithmetic and memory […]
HiPC is an international meeting on high performance computing.
