In GPU Gems 3, we continue to showcase work that uses graphics hardware for nongraphics computation. As each new generation provides significantly greater computing power and programmability, GPUs are increasingly attractive targets for general-purpose computation, or what is commonly called GPGPU or GPU Computing. As a result, researchers and developers in academia and industry continue to develop new GPU algorithms for tasks such as sorting, database operations, image processing, and linear algebra. In many cases, the principal motivation for using the GPU is the prospect of high performance at a relatively low ...
