VizWorld: Georgia Tech announced the release of “GPU VSIPL”, or vector signal image processing library on GPUs. The announcement was made at the High Performance Embedded Computing Conference. The port of of the popular library delivers GPU support through the use of NVIDIA CUDA.
GPU VSIPL is an implementation of Vector Signal Image Processing Library that targets Graphics Processing Units (GPUs) supporting NVIDIA’s CUDA platform. By leveraging processors capable of 900 GFLOP/s or more, your application may achieve considerable speedup without any specialized development for GPUs. Our range-Doppler map application achieved a 75x speedup on the GPU simply by linking it with GPU VSIPL.
