The quest for raw computing power has shifted from increasing processor clock speeds to increasing the number of processing cores. Currently, mainstream CPUs can be purchased in dual-slot quad-core and hex-core configurations. On the other hand, graphic cards provide hundreds of processing cores. Although there have been various implementations of scientific applications on graphics hardware, including underwater acoustic modeling, widespread use of this technology has been hampered by the… CONTINUE READING
