Programmable graphics processing units (GPUs) have emerged as excellent computational platforms for certain general-purpose applications. The data parallel execution capabilities of GPUs specifically point to the potential for effective use in simulations of agent-based models (ABM). In this paper, the computational efficiency of ABM simulation on GPUs is evaluated on representative ABM benchmarks. The runtime speed of GPU-based models is compared to that of traditional CPU-based implementation… CONTINUE READING
