CUDA is a new technology from Nvidia graphics card manufacturers, and probably not many people use in general. The graphics card is more widely used to run gaming applications, but with technology these CUDA graphics card can be used more optimally when running a software application. Nvidia graphics card functions are used to help the Processor (CPU) in performing calculations in the process data.

CUDA stands for Compute Unified Device Architecture, is defined as a parallel computer architecture, developed by Nvidia. This technology can be used to perform image processing, video, 3D rendering, and so forth. VGA - VGA Nvidia's CUDA technology already uses such as: Nvidia GeForce GTX 280, GTX 260.9800 GX2, 9800 GTX +, 9800 GTX, 9800 GT, 9600 GSO, 9600 GT, 9500 GT, 9400 GT, 9400 mGPU, 9300 mGPU , 8800 Ultra, 8800 GTX, 8800 GTS, 8800 GT, 8800 GS, 8600 GTS, 8600 GT, 8500 GT, 8400 GS, 8300 mGPU, 8200 mGPU, 8100 mGPU, and similar series for the class of mobile (notebook VGA).

Software that can definitely use CUDA technology, among others:

- Photoshop Creative Suite CS 4. By using graphics cards already support CUDA, the process of image editing with Photoshop, especially for high-resolution images can be accelerated up to hundreds of percent, the process of zooming and rotate images can be very quickly done. In addition the process of import and manipulate 3D animation in photoshop can be done smoothly.

- Pegasys TMPGEnc 4.0. This software is a video processing application. By using a graphics card with CUDA technology, a video encoding process can be run faster than any CPU usage up to 400%. During this time people use the fast and the Multicore CPU to seek faster video encoding process.

- As well as some other software.

Do not want to miss from Nvidia, AMD is also using technology to run the graphics card or accelerate the process of an application. AMD named this technology with ATI STREAM, namely hardware and software technology that allows the graphics processor (GPU) AMD, working together with the processor (CPU) to speed up common applications, and not limited to just image processing. Processing of video encoding, encryption, and so forth can be done quickly using a GPU. AMD released this technology in conjunction with the release of their latest drivers Catalist 8.12. Graphics card that supports STREAM ATI Radeon graphics card series is 4000, including: Ati Radeon 4870 X2, ATI 4870, ATI 4850, ATI Radeon 4670, and so forth.
Software that supports ATI STREAM, among others:

- ATI Avivo Video Converter

- Adobe Acrobat Reader

- Adobe Photoshop CS 4

- Adobe After Effects

- Microsoft Power Point 2007

- ArcSoft Total Media Theater

- Cyberlink Power Director 7

From some tests, the use of technology is often called GPGPU (General-Purpose Computing on Graphics Processing Units) are indeed very helpful processor performance. By using a better graphics card performance achieved tend to be higher than if we replace with a better processor.

As consumers are always treated with the new technology, of course, a pity if you do not use it. Please try to feature CUDA for those who have a Nvidia graphics card, and please try ATI ASTREAM for those of you who have AMD Ati Radeon graphics card.
