Simulating games on GPU?


#1

The idea of simulating ladder games is pretty good, but we can still improve it.

CPUs usually have no more than 8 cores(16 threads). But lots of computers now have GPUs with thousands of cores.

nVidia cards have CUDA technology , so we can use them for any calculations we want.

So, why can’t we use GPUs for simulating, accelerating everything at least by 10 times.

P.S this requires a quick internet connection to send all the results in server.

We would have to write some very specialized code to get the simulations to run on the GPU, but because we can be running whatever player code is entered, we can’t really specialize it–it has to be a general-purpose code engine, which will only run on the CPU.
