Differences between CPU and GPU

S.No. CPU GPU
1 Really fast caches (great for data reuse). Has lots of math units.
2 Runs lots of differere processes / threads. Run a program on each fragment / vertex.
3 High performance on a single thread of execution. High throughput on parallel tasks.
4 Fine branching granularity. Fast access to onboard memory.
5 CPU are optimised for high performance on sequential codes (caches and branch prediction). CPU are optimised for higher arithmetic intensity for parallel nature (Floating point operations).
6 CPUs are great for task parallelism. GPUs are great for data parallelism.
