Why would you want to use a GPU for general computation? First: performance. Modern GPUs perform floating-point calculations much faster than today's CPUs. For example, a 3 GHz Pentium 4 can theoretically issue around 6 billion floating-point multiplies per second (6 gigaflops). However, a fragment program running on the NVIDIA GeForce FX 5900 Ultra achieves over 20 billion multiplies per second
