If a GPU is better at cracking passwords than a CPU, why is the left brain better at mathematics and logical thinking than the right brain? Would it make more sense to interpret maths more creatively to be able to problem solve quicker?
If graphics require more processing power to run smoothly, would thinking creatively require more "processing power"? In turn, wouldnt using the right side of the brain make logic easier as it would offer more potential than the left side?
A. you're trolling really hard
B. you're absolutely terrible at explaining yourself
C. you completely ignored my post that you're responding too
D. you're retarded
i'll pretend you aren't just trying to be a dick and explain
the gpu isn't acting creatively it is acting logically just like the cpu stop thinking that it is coming up with its own solutions to things we don't understand
P1: 'a GPU is better at cracking passwords than a CPU'
P2: ' the left brain better at mathematics and logical thinking than the right brain'
C1: The right brain should perform better at operation-heavy task
" interpret maths more creatively to be able to problem solve quicker?"
Vague as fuck. Do you want to memorize optimization algorithms or something beyond least squares?
Your predicates aren't well founded
what the literal fuck is wrong with you? are you goddamn 12 years old? The left brain and right brain are connected via the corpus callosum, and you use both of them almost the same (you barely use one more than the other).
0/10 educate yourself
to add to this, a GPU has many, many, many, MANy, exponentially many more cores than a CPU.
GPU cores (especially NVIDIA's) are really goo at performing repetitive mathematical tasks.
If anything, the CPU is more "creative" than the GPU in that a CPU can perform exponentially many more DIFFERENT types of tasks that stream processors can.
I can go on forever about this, but I'll leave it here for now.
Lehman's terms of this >>7643235
is that the OP has it all backwards.
GPU can literally, physically only calculate.That is all the are good at and all they can do. It's basically a fat, hungry, more specialized version of an ALU.
The CPU is the one that actually interprets the data and figures out what to do with it (according to instructions ofc), then spits it out to the GPU, then the GPU shits a bunch of colors onto a display.
>implying left/right brain specialization is a major factor.
>GPU cores (especially NVIDIA's) are really goo at performing repetitive mathematical tasks
AMD actually hes like 20% more pure computing power per $ iirc, and also they have more cores than nv. thing is they have different instruction set so when it's used for generating graphics some of this power is wasted.
I would like to see some actual benchmarking data to back this us up. But yeah, the guy in the stackexchange post pretty much summed it up. GPUs typically have lots more execution units that can run in parallel. password cracking is basically brute forcing a shit ton of different possibilities with no data dependencies. Hence, it benefits from GPU accelerations. You could probably get way more performance and power efficiency from an FPGA but it would be more difficult to implement.

>LITERAL JAVA IMPORTS
FUCKING JAVA M8. No mathematician or scientist uses fucking java. Sounds more like everyone's left brain is a code monkey.
Now we know why CS is so popular, we are all half code monkeys.
First of all, the right being the creativity and left being the logical part of the brain is a myth.
Second of all, comparing computer components to the brain, let alone a myth, isn't a logical assumption.
Third of all, is this bait?
Maths as practiced academically is actually dialectical logic with a specialized symbolic language - ie it is "language" to the brain, not pure calculation. That's why it uses the left hemisphere, and why it is slow. The language aspect is a choke point that creates linearity. The right side does a mindblowing amount of calculation in parallel. That's what creates the "immersiveness" of our subjective experience. It's still a logical deduction from the collective stimulation of the nerves by external and internal objects, but because it's not consciously "audited", it's subjectively instantaneous, and many calculations can be done in parallel and the collective body of their results viewed in parallel as a gestalt or image, rather than as a stream of thought, which is language. This is why, under the influence of psychedelic or deliriant drugs, unreal situations and experiences can be had which are subjectively perceived as fully real - the consciousness is only viewing the (faulty) output of the processes, not the processes themselves.
You're the shill, (1) you literally provided no evidence for your argument and (2) Radeon cards have a higher hashrate than Geforce cards for cryptomining. Also, I own a GTX 980, so I am definitely not biased towards AMD.
> GPUs don't have any cache, like a CPU does.
Lacking cache is not a defining trait of GPUness.
Having cache is not a defining trait of CPUness, and is a relatively recent innovation.
> Also GPUs aren't specialized CPUs as that would imply that a GPU could replace a CPU as the central processor.
What do you think "specialized" means?
>gpu's don't have a cache
Huh? I was certain gpu's did have all the functions of a cpu. I always thought that gpu's were like a second computer within a computer, with its own registers and memory.
The only difference was that gpu's were specifically wired for matrix multiplication operations.
Am I wrong?
>Lacking cache is not a defining trait of GPUness
Would it make sense to put caches in a GPU? No, so I believe a lack of cache is a defining feature of the GPU.
>What do you think "specialized" means?
In this case, a replacement for a CPU with lots of cores, and no cache.
>Thinking left brain is logical and right brain is not
No such thing as left brain/right brain thinking is spread out evenly, not contained to a dominant hemisphere, the left brain is not better that is just where information is sorted/stored, and vis versa
>Left brain right brain
Isnt this a myth? anatomically speaking both sides are symmetrical,I have yet to take the neurology class but my anatomical and histological knowledge are raising red flags.
>not me, so chill shill
>evidence is not needed when thar ist google
>most games written for Nvidia cards, also Nvidia invented graphics processing units (essentially)
>ATI/Radeon/AMD graphics for cheap enthusiasts and widely known for inefficiencies
>Nvidia cards have higher hashrate per core than anyone else but has lower amount of APUs per card because of greater graphics/physics efficiency (with the exception of their high-end workstation cards)
>argument was about OP being deluded about brain/CPU/GPU relationship
>never go full shill
>muh left brain
>muh right brain
Why do you think people understand the brain? Because they don't. They're just oversimplifications which are spread by popsci mongrels throughout 9gag and facebook. Please, read at least one book before posting pretentious threads on an anonymous image board.
Did you even read the thread? There's about 60+ replies on the subject, and the entire internet at your disposal. Its not even a complicated question, any psychology undergrade could figure this one out.
You are literally (yes, literally) hopeless. You are a complete failure, suicide would probably the best option for someone as daft as you.
and i thought i were in place full of rationally thinking people who at least try to check their facts before they even start writing anything.
FUCKING IDIOTS EVERYWHERE.
still, facts are here:
2 cards launched in June 2015, both for price of 649$ with their pure computing power measured in TFLOPS (single precision):
Radeon R9 Fury X 8601.6
GeForce GTX 980 Ti 5632
so yeah, i was wrong. AMD card is actually 52% FASTER than NV one (also for double precision AMD is 3 TIMES faster than NV)
or maybe it was just nvidia shill?
>mommy... the internet isn't playing nice today...
When it comes to mining bitcoins which is basically the same thing
CPU<GPU<Dedicated mining hardware
and there is a big difference between them
i7 right now is a meme unless you have the GPU to back it up.
>/sci/ is one person
And comparing GPU outside of benchmarks for that specific task is just a pissing contest.
