At AccelerEyes, we are happy that MathWorks has finally turned the corner on accepting GPU technology, something we've been pushing them to do since 2007. We are also excited, because this is great news for the GPU computing ecosystem, to see one of the technical computing giants validate the approach we've been delivering with Jacket. Finally, we are thrilled, because we are confident that anyone attempting to use GPU computing via MATLAB directly will end up becoming a Jacket programmer (for instance, try indexing into a matrix or running a convolution with R2010b). To see how Jacket stacks up against the alternative, see: * http://www.accelereyes.com/products/compare and * http://forums.accelereyes.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=1487 Jacket will always offer the best in GPU computing technology. Without Jacket's runtime technology, no MATLAB GPU computing attempt will be able to come close to competing in performance benefits on real applications. It is one thing to get a few functions to run on the GPU. But getting full applications to run fast on the GPU is an entirely different matter. We invite you to check it out for yourself by visiting, http://www.accelereyes.com Best, John Melonakos CEO AccelerEyes

Kind of a big leap you make, that's what I think.

The specialized processing that GPUs can provide is an interesting hardware platform if it can be used to accelerate DSP processing. It reminds me of array processors providing acceleration for math intensive software (FFT etc.). It seems that the IO bottleneck remains to be a limiting factor just as it was many years back with the dedicated array processors. I would love to see some benchmark numbers using Nvidia chips with Mathworks.

It seems most EDA tools will have support for running on a GPU going forwards. What do you think?
