How GPU processing has advanced computing

24th September 2021 by Brytlyt

The way a GPU handles data is very different to that of a CPU. As a specialised microprocessor, GPUs are composed of hundreds of cores that can handle thousands of threads simultaneously. This means GPUs are particularly well suited for doing specific tasks incredibly well – making them perfect for taking on repetitive and specialised computing tasks at speed.

This has led to a complete revolution in the way we think about processing data and has spawned an entire new industry of companies taking advantage of the continued advancements in GPU hardware. Businesses around the world are unlocking their analytics potential by updating their technology to take advantage of the vast amount of data available.

By using Brytlyt’s GPU acceleration, businesses can leverage not just vast datasets of millions of rows of data, but can also use the very latest data available through speed of aggregation and processing. Historically, users would have to devote time (typically overnight) towards aggregating datasets – putting them at a disadvantage with a lack of access to the very latest information. With Brytlyt’s GPU technology, users can harness their complete datasets with greater flexibility and agility as well, processing in milliseconds.

The modern processing technologies that Brytlyt offer can give a far greater level of performance and insight than what legacy systems have ever been able to offer before.

A GPU works on SIMD (Single Instruction Multiple Data) or SIMT (Single Instruction Multiple Threads), which is essentially SIMD + multi-threading. Compared to a CPU, it has much higher core or processor count. However, each of these processors are much simpler because they implement simple logic. In this case, it really is strength in numbers.

What are the different uses for GPU processing?

A tool is only as good as what it’s useful for; and the potential for GPU Data Processing is virtually limitless for process intensive operations across multiple industries. The vast computing power available from GPUs allows companies to extract useful & highly valuable business intelligence from large datasets, with incredible accuracy and speed. Over time, GPUs have become more flexible and programmable, enhancing their capabilities beyond its origins in the gaming sphere.

What makes GPUs different?

The power that’s available from GPUs has completely reshaped computing over the past few years, with the extended range and scale of computational resources available.

By using state of the art GPU processing, BrytlytDB has been proven to be the fastest data processing engine available on the market. With BrytlytDB’s speed-of-thought processing, we enable customers to unlock the full potential of every data asset they have, with the ability to explore the power of innovative data visualisation tools such as Tableau and TIBCO Spotfire.

Over the next few years, the vast majority of organisations are expected to have, or be moving to, cloud-based GPU systems to meet their data, infrastructure and software needs. The ability to upscale as an organisation’s growth demands makes a good business case in itself and is an increasingly appealing proposition for enterprises of all sizes.

GPUs handle specific tasks incredibly well making them perfect for taking on repetitive and specialised computing tasks at speed. This gives them a significant speed advantage over what’s previously been achievable with CPUs.

GPU-accelerated systems are also inherently well suited to provide interactive visualisation in real-time for enormous datasets.
