Fast processing for display graphics or math/vector acceleration engine
A GPU complements a processor to offer display graphics or can serve as a math/vector acceleration engine. As a display processor, a GPU supports real-time graphics using OpenGL and media codecs such as MPEG and H.254, and can drive multiple displays simultaneously. When used as a math/vector accelerator, a GPU can perform floating-point calculations using hundreds or thousands of parallel floating-point units via the use of OpenCL and CUDA software frameworks. In data-intensive applications, such as imaging enhancement and mosaicking, GPUs can stitch together input from multiple sensors or process radar data faster than general-purpose CPUs.
