Dear 子逸 張,
first of all I would like to remind you that there is a special mailing
list for such discussion.
GPUs are nothing magic but simply massively parallel devices usually
attached to a CPU multi-core board.
The complexity of accelerated systems requires a considerable
If lacking of this fundamental component I strongly recommend to keep
considering the CPU version of the distribution, only.
However, with good balance between CPU and GPU, high-end modern
technology and a significant computational workload, decent speed up was
registered while using GPU on top of the CPU platform.
