    1948 Words  | 8 Pages

    In the age of parallel computing, there has been a consistent growth of cores available on the central processing unit (CPU). Alas, the “free lunch” is now over and the CPU is facing the end of the easily obtained performance gains from Moore’s Law. Another processing unit, the graphics processing unit (GPU), is also under the influence of Moore’s Law. And as the graphical standards demanded by driving markets have consistently risen, the companies that produce the GPU have consistently delivered

    Central Processing Unit The CPU or Central Processing Unit, is essentially the brain of any computer since the CPU was refined to the microprocessor we see today. It works together with every other part of a computer, who themselves cannot work individually. Although The CPU may look much like an expensive computer chip at first glance, it is an intricately designed piece of hardware with cache memory of varying sizes, and cores of varying speeds. This is where calculations from simple arithmetic

    This paper is based on CUDA, a parallel computing platform model, which utilizes the resources of the Graphical Processing Unit (GPU), increasing the computing performance of our system, hence creating a robust parallel computing unit. In this paper, we will be introducing a brief history on CUDA, it’s execution flow and it’s architecture to handle processor intensive tasks. We will also be highlighting some of it’s real life applications and the difference in performance as compared of the only

    technology which are hardware and software. Hardware refers to the physical elements of a computer which is sometimes called the equipment of the computer which consists of the keyboard, disk drives, microprocessor, the monitor, the mouse, the processing unit, and many other physical parts. Most of a computer 's hardware cannot be seen, it is not an external element of the computer, but an internal one surrounded by the computer 's casing (Harvey 2015). Software is commonly known as programs which

  • Taking a Closer Look at a CPU

    correctly. One of the main components that a computer needs to work is a Central Processing Unit also known as the microprocessor. The central processing unit includes all the computers main parts, and is the basic part of the computer. The CPU is responsible for executing out tasks, and running the software. The software runs on programs that are translated into number codes made up of 1s and 0s that the central processing unit can understand. Each code that is executed means a certain operation should

    best option to start would be explaining the unit that has its hand in everything in a computer and that is known as the “Central Processing Unit” also known as “CPU.” In a modern computer are 6 main components that are required for a computer to work. These components are the Motherboard, Central Processing Unit (CPU), Graphics Processing Unit (GPU), Random Access Memory (RAM), Hard Disk Drive (HDD) or Solid State Drive (SSD), and the Power Supply Unit (PSU). The motherboard acts as a highway for

    search spaces, and data volume have become a huge challenge. As predicted by Moore’s law .faster and faster computers are built to provide more processing power every year. Apparently, speeding-up the computation serially alone is no longer enough. In 1967 Amdahl presented a model to estimate the theoretical maximum improvement when multiple processing units were
