Recent advance of the technologies incorporated in graphics hardware has enabled general-purpose computations on graphics hardware, which can further be used for high-performance computation in low cost. In addition, the graphical processing units (GPUs) on graphics hardware demonstrates a performance/cost ratio superior to central processing units (CPUs)(More)
number one globally, with 88.6 women and 17.3 men per 100,000 population [1]. This is a 15-fold increase in just a decade.
