Accelerating 3D Seismic Data Analysis on Desktop Workstations

by Keith Forward

Geophysicists often say that they could work better and find more oil and gas if they had access to faster computers on their desktop. Until now, intensive processing tasks had to be sent off to a server cluster, returned and the results visualised on a desktop workstation. Now, for around $10,000, you can get the speed of a small cluster in a desktop machine, by using the untapped potential of the GPU.
