GPU programing for scientific computing has several gains in the processing time and there is some libraries who could help like blas, lapack etc. One option to use GPU and those libraries is cuBlas, with those libraries is possible to run several functions in GPU:

  1. cublas<t>geam();
  2. cublas<t>her()
  3. and all the 152 blas function.

The statment is cuBlas is lot faster than MKL:
