General Purpose GPUs (GPGPUs) Using a Graphics Processor Unit (GPU) for Feature
 

Summary: General Purpose GPUs (GPGPUs)
Using a Graphics Processor Unit (GPU) for Feature
Extraction from Turbulent Flow datasets
Andrew Davidson
Frameworks Group, CCT
Introduction-Why GPUs?
GPUs are very powerful, and highly cost-effective
Due to demand for "top of the line" graphics, GPU
growth has surpassed CPU growth
GPUs have shown promising co-processing abilities
With the release of high level shading languages, the
use of GPUs for general purpose processing is
possible, and very fast when applied to certain
algorithms.
Cg and Fragment Programs
Fragment Programs used to do the computation are
written in Cg
Cg is a shading language used on GPUs, due to
different architectures direct C code conversions are
impossible
