The article discusses the power of Tesla graphical processing unit (GPU) with personal computers for financial applications. It also discusses the challenge for coders using GPU-based computers to learn a new programming language called the Compute Unified Device Architecture (CUDA). The National Center for Supercomputing Applications (NCSA) has the largest deployment of supercomputer in the U.S. that is powered by both the central processing units (CPUs) and the GPU.
