NVIDIA Unveils CUDA - The GPU Computing Revolution Begins

| Posted: Nov 9, 2006 10:36 pm

In a fresh announcement from NVIDIA a short time ago they've unveiled their "CUDA" technology, a first of its kind in which powerful computing tasks can be offloaded to the GPU to help get things moving along at up to 100 times faster then traditional approaches.

 

To learn more about it, have a read of the official PR over at NVIDIA's press room.

 


SANTA CLARA, CA-NOVEMBER 8, 2006-NVIDIA Corporation (Nasdaq: NVDA), the worldwide leader in graphics processors, today unveiled NVIDIA CUDA technology, a fundamentally new architecture for computing on NVIDIA graphics processing units (GPUs), and the industry's first C-compiler development environment for the GPU.

 

GPU computing with CUDA is a new approach to computing where hundreds of on-chip processor cores simultaneously communicate and cooperate to solve complex computing problems up to 100 times faster than traditional approaches. This breakthrough architecture is complemented by another first-the NVIDIA C-compiler for the GPU. This complete development environment gives developers the tools they need to solve new problems in computation-intensive applications such as product design, data analysis, technical computing, and game physics.
