NVIDIA® CUDA™ is a general purpose parallel computing architecture that
leverages the parallel compute engine in NVIDIA graphics processing
units (GPUs) to solve many complex computational problems in a fraction
of the time required on a CPU. It includes the CUDA Instruction Set
Architecture (ISA) and the parallel compute engine in the GPU. To
program to the CUDATM architecture, developers can, today, use C, one of
the most widely used high-level programming languages, which can then be
run at great performance on a CUDATM enabled processor. Other languages
will be supported in the future, including FORTRAN and C++.
