It has been reported that GPGPU
is suitable for image processing.
For our prototype we have used NVidia GPU hardware and CUDA (Compute Unified Device Architecture) to implement GPGPU
In recent, various GPGPU
(General-purpose computing on Graphic Process Unit) techniques have been introduced, which enable the computation of general-purpose operations to be speed up using GPU in various fields such as computer vision [5-7].
None of this would have been possible without the advent of GPGPU
technology,” Challa said.
This device consists of 4 GPGPU
units, each of which with 3 GB of RAM memory and 448 processing cores working at 1.15 GHz.
For multicore SoCs, for example, GPGPU
, the user is required to provide explicit computation partitioning among tasks in the CUDA programming language.

, Kepler, algorithmic function.
Some other areas covered are scheduling periodic real-time tasks with heterogeneous reward requirements, identifying burglars through networked sensor-camera mates, timing analysis of a protected operating system kernel, a responsive GPGPU
execution model for runtime engines, and scheduling of certifiable mixed-criticality sporadic task systems.
Existing applications demonstrate that both OpenCL and CUDA have the ability to successfully manage tens of thousands of parallel threads of execution and run efficiently on both x86 and GPGPU
The S3 Graphics 5400E OpenCL 1.0 capable processor is purportedly the world's only power efficient GPGPU
processor with embedded life-cycle support.
In our proposed solution, for the implementation we will use NVidia GPU hardware (2x8800 GTX Ultra mounted in the same PC) and the NVidia (CUDA) toolkit to implement Ray Tracing as a GPGPU
"NVIDIA Pascal GPU technology has been gaining popularity due to its high-performance graphics and GPGPU
computing using CUDA or OpenCL," added Selwyn L.
