Hi Reno 4x4!
I'd like to share with yall' info about GPGPU. GPGPU stands for
General-Purpose Computation on Graphics Hardware. This means, you can use your graphics card for general computing.

A great example is video transcoding. You can use your GPU to transcode videos in badaboom, a video transcoding program using CUDA by nVIDIA. http://www.badaboomit.com/ -website

Here is a personal benchmark.

Test Computer:
E8400 @ 4.36 GHz (510 x 8.5) @ 1.44 VCore
EVGA nVIDIA GeForce GTX 275 overclocked (Core/Shader/memory) 730/1584/1305 (2600Mhz Effective clock
OCZ Fata1ty 4GB DDR2 @ 1040 MHz


Video file: Wheelman gameplay Size: 204 MB. Resolution/FPS 1280x720 by 50 FPS. Length: 4:23

Adobe Media Encoder: 7 Minutes 6 seconds.

Badaboom: 2 minutes 32 seconds


As you can see, the difference is great.



NOW, DISCUSS!
