The goal of this project is to investigate the performance tradeoffs between using a Graphical Processing Unit (GPU) versus a Central Processing Unit (CPU) when applied to parallel general purpose computing processes. This is achieved by running similar algorithms with varying input sizes on both pieces of hardware and measuring the differences in total execution time.
