Using CUDA, the GPUs can be used for general purpose processing (i.e., not exclusively graphics); this approach is known as GPGPU. Unlike CPUs, however, GPUs have a parallel throughput architecture that emphasizes executing many concurrent threads slowly, rather than executing a single thread very quickly. CUDA provides both a low level API and a higher level API. The initial CUDA SDK was made public on 15 February 2007, for Microsoft Windows and Linux. Example of CUDA processing flow 1. Background[edit] The GPU, as a specialized processor, addresses the demands of real-time high-resolution 3D graphics compute-intensive tasks. Advantages[edit] Limitations[edit]
