By 2012, three of the top five supercomputers in the world will have graphics processors using parallel computing applications to crunch numbers at a clip that’s not possible on standard CPU-only set-ups, predicts Nvidia chief scientist David Kirk.
Since other supercomputers are projected to be at several petaflops in speed then the GPGPU enhanced machines must be targeting 5-10 petaflops in performance by 2012.
