[NH] Calculate SuperPi with your graphics card soon

SuperPi is one of the most popular benchmarks of today. Even though it's very simple, and horribly single-threaded, there's still a lot of prestige in being able to calculate pi to one million decimals the fastest. The current record is less than 7.5 seconds (7.437s to be exact, held by no_name) with the SuperPi application (it uses the Gauss-Legendre algorithm). FUGGER of XtremeSystems has now announced that SuperPi will make it's way to GPUs now, through CUDA. The benchmark will be able to utilize the highly parallel design of modern GPUs, and should be ready within a month. We'll keep you posted if anything comes up.

Wouldn't a GPU just munch up a Pi run. It's such a simple task for them.

Just having read the article and the CUDA part, just thought i'd let everyone know that this is pretty much 8 series+.

We keep hearing all these things coming to CUDA, but when are we actually going to see them?

Does this exclude ATI then?

CUDA is out, but there aren't many programs made for it yet.

when you hear anything with CUDA in it, that means it will only run on 8 series and up Nvidia cards... no ati..
good enough

I wonder how GFX cards will compare to CPU's when calculating Pi.

I wonder if/how a ATi version could be made - good stress tester for GFX card overclocks?
