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 – attached processors used to accelerate computationally intensive applications. In this talk, using NVIDA GPUs as a basis, I’ll provide a brief history of the GPU, the evolution of GPUs into computing devices, understanding their performance characteristics, and the challenges that lie in attaining high performance from these devices.
