GPGPU origins and GPU hardware architecture

  • By now GPUs have become powerful general purpose processors that found their way not only into desktop systems but also supercomputers. To use GPUs efficiently one needs to understand their basic architecture and their limitations. We take a look at how GPUs evolved and how they differ from CPUs to gain a deeper understanding of the workloads well suited for GPUs.
