Economic Considerations Regarding The Opportunity Of Optimizing Data Processing Using Graphics Processing Units
In this paper, we have researched economic considerations regarding the opportunity of optimizing data processing using graphics processing units (GPU) that implement the Compute Unified Device Architecture (CUDA). After analyzing the hardware’s costs and a series of experimental tests, the study concludes that using GPU-based configurations for running basic algorithmic functions that optimize data processing, offers an improved performance and a better price/performance ratio than in the case when a CPU-based system is used. This justifies the opportunity of using the CUDA graphics processing units for optimizing data processing.
