1. Abstract

Graphics processing units (GPUs) on commodity video cards were originally designed towards the needs of the 3-D gaming industry for high performance, real-time graphics. They have become powerful co-processors to the CPUs. The top of the line Nvidia GPUs for computation have 512 cores in one chip. Scientists and engineers from many disciplines are exploring various ways to use this massive amount of parallel computation. This presentation gives an introduction of GPU hardware and programming, and a survey of some applications.
