NVIDIA CEO Predicts GPU Performance Boost of 570x

Pushing the power of GPGPU, Jen-Hsun Huang has predicted that GPU computing will see an astounding 570x boost in performance over the next 6 years, while CPU’s will see only 3x.

Huang said at the Hot Chips Symposium in Stanford University that such advances could enable the development of realtime universal language translation devices and advanced forms of augmented reality. A number of applications, including energy exploration, interactive ray tracing and CGI simulations would also benefit from the powerful GPU capabilities.

Of course, these kind of comparisons are kinda like comparing apples and oranges, rather than apples and apples.
