The rise of GPU compute: CPU vs. GPU GFLOPS comparison

The rise of GPU compute

        

“If you were ploughing a field, which would you rather use: two strong oxen or 1024 chickens?” Seymour Cray, the father of supercomputing GPU compute refers to the current trend of using cores aimed at rendering graphics to perform computational tasks usually handled by the CPU and has had a major impact on the way […]
