Research output: Contribution to journalConference article


The speed, bandwidth and cost characteristics of today's PC graphics cards make them an attractive target as general purpose calculational platforms. I will outline the advantages and challenges of performing lattice simulations on such a hardware architecture and compare it with the traditional CPU based platforms. Sample code is also given.
