GPU computing is becoming a predominant force in supercomputing and is finding its way into a number of big data disciplines in both science and industry.

During his kickoff speech, Jen-Hsun Huang traced the roots in gaming up to the present, noting his company’s investment in the future of entertainment, but the real star of the show this week was science—and the potential for accelerating areas that are dealing with unprecedented amounts of data, and demanding an uninterrupted need for efficient but performance-geared compute power. Such a statement has already echoed within academia with many new Top500 systems, including the upcoming Titan supercomputer, carrying a wealth of GPUs.
