ABSTRACT
<p>The Fermi GF100 is a GPU architecture that provides several new capabilities beyond the Nvidia GT200 or Tesla architecture. The Fermi architecture offers up to 512 CUDA cores and special features for gaming and high-performance computing. This article describes the GPU's new capabilities for tessellation, physics processing, and computational graphics.</p>
