Figure 2

Simplified view of the nVidia G80 Architecture. This figure, inspired by a similar figure in [23] shows how the GPU is organized into several (N) multiprocessors, each containing multiple (M) stream processors that simultaneously execute the same instruction. Each processor can access the texture cache very quickly, but reads and writes to the onboard RAM have high latency.
