Supercomputing's Next Revolution

Recent Wired article on GPGPU:

"On Wednesday, Nvidia announced the industry's first C-compiler development environment for the GPU, called CUDA, a move that will make it easier to tap the GPU for custom applications, from product design to number crunching. Nvidia general manager for GPU computing, Andy Keane, said the company created a completely new architecture for its newest GPU, the GeForce 8800, adding a cache that allows the chip to work in two modes--one for graphics that uses "stream processing" and a second so-called load-store mode for more complex logic-based operations."
