Beyond its applications in Graphics, general-purpose graphics processing unit computing (GPGPU) utilizes a Graphics Processing Unit (GPU)–which typically used to perform computations exclusively for computer graphics–at present to parallelize computations traditionally performed by the CPU. GPGPU becomes more widely used in applications demanding for high performance.
