Nowadays, GPUs are multi-core parallel processors with very high memory bandwidth. Recently for last few years developers and researchers are offloading computationally intensive tasks to GPUs to gain significant speedup compared to the CPU. Most of the image processing algorithms perform same operation on a large number of pixels, which can be parallelized on single instruction multiple data GPU architecture. Initially shader based frameworks like GLSL, Cg etc have been used for GP-GPU. NVIDIA has developed CUDA to write ...
