CPU/GPU Comparison

A CPU (Central Processing Unit) typically has 2-6 cores that operate at a frequency between 1.5-3.5 GHz. A Graphics Processing Unit (GPUs) consist of 100s of cores that operate at a frequency of 500-900 MHz and it is typically used to compute the textures or even physics in ...

NGCM Summer Academy: Programming GPUs


Graphics Processing Units (GPUs) are processors that have been built to render textures on the user's screen and with the large demand from the gaming industry, they have made considerable advancements in the speed at which they can perform floating point operations (FLOPS). As computational modelling typically requires a ...
