  • The popularity of these GPUs baffles me. They are hard to program and very limited in what they can do, not to mention the horrible transfers to main memory, yet because there is no other foreseeable technology coming in the next 5 years or so they are becoming the standard for massively parallel programming on a budget. Any university and its dog has GPU projects, with wild performance claims, usually measuring a code they spend years optimizing for the GPU against the original code running un-optimized on
