Asymmetric Computing: Days of Cheap GPU Computing may be over

Reposted from my Asymmetric Computing blog.

For those of us interested in GPU computing, Greg Pfister has written an interesting article entitled “Nvidia-based Cheap Supercomputing Coming to an End” commenting on the future of NVIDIA’s supercomputing technology that has been subsidized by gamers and commodity GPUs. It looks like Intel’s Sandy Bridge architecture may end that.

If you don’t read Greg Pfister’s Perils of Parallel blog, you should. He’s been doing parallel computing for a long time and is very good at exposing the pitfalls and hidden costs of parallelism.
