CPU vs GPU. What’s the difference?

I remember the days of the Six Million Dollar Man.  “Gentlemen, we can rebuild him. We have the technology. We have the capability to build the world’s first bionic man. Steve Austin will be that man. Better than he was before. Better…stronger…faster.”  It’s much the same in High Performance Computing.  Better, stronger…faster.  Enter the GPGPU computing era.

Tomorrow I am going to tell you about a revolutionary product from Dell Data Center Solutions called the c410x which uses the nVidia Tesla 2050 and 2070 cards to take computing to a whole new level to achieve much better results in a faction of the time traditional computing would take. For now, enjoy the Mythbusters educating us all in a way only they can.
