..also keep in mind graphic cards can carry the bulk of the work,
a typical recent card doing math can do about 50 GFLOPS where
tyical recent CPU's does 6 GFLOPS, according to at gpgpu.org:
http://www.ece.ucdavis.edu/~jowens/talks/owens-hpec04-gpgpu.pdfLooks like they had not got the units correct there. I think they meant
6GB/s data processing speed for 32bit float multiply or sometihing.
Anyway, I think their numbers for the Pentium 4 would be to high anyway.
A typical P4 works aroung 3GHz, and 6GFlops/s would be 2 flops per
second. 6GB/s would be 2 bytes per second, or 0.5 32bit operations per
second, which requires pretty effective paralell intruction for the P4.
