"Nvidia has spilled the beans on how its upcoming GPU architecture is built to excel in GPU-computing applications. Keep reading to see what makes the architecture code-named "Fermi" unique.
Graphics processors, as you may know, have been at the center of an ongoing conversation about the future of computing. GPUs have shown tremendous promise not just for producing high-impact visuals, but also for tackling data-parallel problems of various types, including some of the more difficult challenges computing now faces. Hence, GPUs and CPUs have been on apparent collision course of sorts for some time now, and that realization has spurred a realignment in the processor business."
