Presentation: Tweet"Massive acceleration through the many-core processor that you call a graphics card"
There is a hidden beast of raw computing power in the midst of your pc; the graphics card. For obvious reasons, the graphics card used to be all about real-time graphics – but is today a potential source of massive hardware acceleration of many different algorithms. In this talk Jesper Mosegaard will shortly give a historical review of the programmable graphics processing units, give details of production code for a number of clients, and give a best-guess at the future of hardware accelerated computing. The take away for the audience will be a general idea of whether using the graphics processing units is something to do now – and when it will become inevitable in the future of the (heterogeneous) processing unit.
