GPUs can be used for much more than graphics processing. As opposed to a CPU, which can only run four or five threads at once, a GPU is made up of hundreds or even thousands of individual, low-powered cores, allowing it to perform thousands of concurrent operations. Because of this, GPUs can tackle large, complex problems on a much shorter time scale than CPUs. Dive into parallel programming on NVIDIA hardware with CUDA Succinctly by Chris Rose, and learn the basics of unlocking your graphics card.
This book discusses CUDA hardware and software in greater detail and covering both CUDA 5.0 and Kepler. Every CUDA developer, from the casual to the most sophisticated, will find something here of interest and immediate usefulness. Newer CUDA developers will see how the hardware processes commands and how the driver checks progress; more experienced CUDA developers will appreciate the expert coverage of topics such as the driver API and context migration, as well as the guidance on how best to structure CPU/GPU data interchange and synchronization.
