HPC Smackdown: GP-GPU vs the Latest and Greatest CPUs

The 21st century equivalent of Frazier vs. Ali?

In this corner we have the GP-GPU (General Purpose Graphical Processing Unit) talking trash about TeraFLOPS and how the way forward for HPC is SIMD parallelism. In the other corner is the traditional CPU sporting the new multi-core look. Can the “do it all” CPU still deliver the performance? Are all FLOPS created equal? What about the tag team partners of OpenCL, Cuda, Brook vs the Fortran and C? Who is going to win this number smashing match?

This design is spectacular! You obviously know how to keep a reader entertained. Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own blog (well, almost…HaHa!) Excellent job. I really loved what you had to say, and more than that, how you presented it. Too cool!

Awsome post and straight to the point. I don’t know if this is actually the best place to ask but do you people have any ideea where to get some professional writers? Thanks :)
