GPUs, FPGAs, ASICs, or Many-Core Processors: Which Acceleration Technology Do Datacenters Need?

Authors: Peter Rutten, Gregoire Robinson

Abstract

This IDC Perspective provides an overview of accelerated compute hardware and examines various considerations IT buyers should take into account when purchasing accelerators.

"Accelerators differ significantly and perform some tasks better than others, which means that businesses need to thoroughly inform themselves on what type of accelerator they need for a given workload," said Gregoire Robinson, research analyst at IDC's Servers and Computing Platforms.
