What exactly is CUDA? - Page 2

post #11 of 14
M2090/C1060/C2075/M2075 etc are real GPUs for number/data cruncher because GPU's are way way way faster than CPU.
That's why nowadays most computing clusters they use GPU instead of CPU.

I have seen a serious buyers they buy 8 GPUs in one system for serious computing, so I don't think this is a nvidia gimmicks.
I have some gpu pics in my library taken from my old job.

So it's pretty much a "boost" for certain things? I guess I will wait for Kepler or get a 580/590.

GPUs were great for calculating a lot of vectors and trigonomotry

But they weren't easy to use for scientists doing things like chemistry, biology and physics simulation

So NVIDIA changed (slightly) the way they build their GPUs so that scientists could use them easier

That easy system is a computer language called CUDA

But now video encoders and stuff like that can use CUDA as well to speed up how they compute stuff

@ the guy saying Ati stream. AMD uses APP, works well in some applications like Powerdirector, after effects.
