GPUs have fundamentally changed the playing field of high performance computing.? Starting out as devices intended only for the display of 3D images, GPUs are now used as supercomputers â?? attached processors used to accelerate computationally intensive applications.? In this talk, using NVIDA GPUs as a basis, Iâ??ll provide a brief history of the GPU, the evolution of GPUs into computing devices, understanding their performance characteristics, and the challenges that lie attaining high performance from these devices.
