NVIDIA CUDA can speed up virus scanning

Posted on Tuesday, October 06 2009 @ 16:31:18 CEST by

NVIDIA General Manager of CUDA Sanford Russell told FUD Zilla that GPUs can be used to speed up virus scanning:
Since this is highly parallel job, this would be a perfect task for Nvidia GPUs and since this market is huge, Nvidia definitely plans to put a lot of effort behind this project. Every Windows PC has a virus scanner, and in case it doesn’t, it wont last that long and this is definitely a great opportunity for the success of GPU computing and CUDA.

If Nvidia makes virus scanning drastically faster, they might have a chance of selling more GPUs than any time before.
