Data Parallel Computation on Graphics Hardware

  title={Data Parallel Computation on Graphics Hardware},
  author={Ian Buck and Pat Hanrahan},
As the programmability and performance of modern GPUs continues to increase, many researchers are looking to graphics hardware to solve problems previously performed on general purpose CPUs. In many cases, performing general purpose computation on graphics hardware can provide a significant advantage over implementations on traditional CPUs. However, if GPUs are to become a powerful processing resource, it is important to establish the correct abstraction of the hardware; this will encourage… CONTINUE READING
