CUDA taken into book form, for your learning needs

Most people don’t realize just how much processing power is contained in modern GPUs and the fact that they can be programmed to do things other than pump out vivid graphics. It’s a massively parrallelized processor which can speed up time consuming tasks like video conversion, image manipulation, and even some database tasks.

A pair of software engineers at NVIDIA have put together a book on how to tap into the CUDA language and make the most out of the hardware sitting inside of a large chunk of consumer and business PCs around the world. Quite frankly the more programmers there are working towards a General Purpose GPU future the more interesting possibilities there will be for servers, desktops, and even smartphone applications in the long run.
