How GPU came to be used for general computation


A very cool and interesting article from MS blogger Igor Ostrovsky.

In this article, I will explore how and why this happened, and summarize the state of general computation on GPUs today.-

I bumped upon Igor's blog a few weeks ago, he has a couple of pretty OK things there :) - time to read the article.

Interesting, but a bit beyond my level of education. :huh:

I liked the pretty video though. :Thmbsup:
