Building a Supercomputer with Graphics Cards

June 2nd, 2008

ScientistBack in November, Chad’s News discussed the possibility of using GPUs to perform computations. Well, now it’s been done officially. According to the linked article, a PC with four graphics cards (8 GPUs total) has the computational power of 300 dual-core CPUs. This comes with a caveat, of course, as GPUs only excel at certain types of problems. But still, I think it’s a pretty impressive accomplishment.
