Because visual computations are very data intensive they are often limited by the bandwidth of the system rather than its peak computational performance. The trend towards many-core architectures exacerbates the problem because the parallel cores let the compute capability grow exponentially while the system bandwidth increases only linearly. At the core of… (More)
