GPGPU
General-purpose computing on graphics processing units (GPGPU, rarely GPGP) is the use of a graphics processing unit (GPU), which typically handles computation only for computer graphics, to perform computation in applications traditionally handled by the central processing unit (CPU).[1][2][3][4] The use of multiple video cards in one computer, or large numbers of graphics chips, further parallelizes the already parallel nature of graphics processing.[5] In addition, even a single GPU-CPU framework provides advantages that multiple CPUs
CPUs
on their own do not offer due to the specialization in each chip.[6] Essentially, a GP GPU
