    Many existing partial differential equation solver packages focus on the important, but arcane, task of numerically solving the linearized set of algebraic equations that result from discretizing a set of PDEs. Many researchers, however, need something higher level than that. View full abstract»

    Graphics processing units (GPUs) can provide excellent speedups on some, but not all, general-purpose workloads. Using a set of computational GPU kernels as examples, the authors show how to adapt kernels to utilize the architectural features of a GeForce 8800 GPU and what finally limits the achievable performance.
