GPU increases computation heavy lifting by 10-200x

This slashdot article talks about Nvidia’s compiler environment for the new GeForce 8800 GPU. Apparently, you can get a 10-200x increase in performance for heavy numeric tasks compared to a CPU.

Assuming this will enable a 100x increase in Neural Network computation, it will save 8 years or so in Moore’s law timeline to NN based AI.
