Graphics Processing Units for Neural Networks

General Purpose Computing on GPUs – Graphics Processing Units for Neural Networks Goal Neural networks are powered by graphic processing units (GPUs) and computing architectures are quickly growing employing several of them for building huge models. Motivation The main reason and motivation for handling the computations in neural networks on GPUs is the fact that neural networks consist of identical units which each perform computations widely independent of the overall architecture. The physical architecture of GPUs with its greater number of cores perfectly allows to perform these computations in parallel. Ingredients CPU, RAM, PCIe, SSD, FLOPS Steps The central processing unit (CPU) is known to most people for basically determining the performance of a PC. Traditionally the metric to look […]
