Since the 1990s FPGAs have been popular for accelerating video processing applications. This paper presents GPUs (graphics processing units) as another viable solution, comparing their throughput with that of FPGAs. Previous work on using FPGAs and GPUs for video processing is analysed, grounds for comparison formulated and then exemplified through case studies of primary colour correction and 2D convolution. GPUs are seen to be advantageous in applications utilising their optimised instruction… CONTINUE READING
