This paper reports and analyzes the results of neutrons radiation testing campaigns on a modern commercial-off-the-shelf Graphic Processing Unit (GPU). A set of guidelines for accelerated radiation experiments on CPUs is presented, emphasizing the shrewdness necessary to ease the test and gain meaningful data. Radiation test results are presented and discussed, highlighting the neutrons sensitivities of the different GPU memory and logic resources in terms of Failure In Time (FIT) due to neutrons at sea level.
