NVIDIA Corporation and the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC) today announced that UIUC has been named as the world’s first CUDA Center of Excellence. In addition to the appointment, NVIDIA has donated $500,000 to UIUC for the development of parallel computing facilities and the continuation of its research programs.


“The CUDA Center of Excellence program rewards schools that truly embrace the concept of parallel processing as the future of computing,” said Dr. David Kirk, chief scientist at NVIDIA. “Schools receiving this accreditation integrate the CUDA software environment into their curriculum to help their students harness the capabilities of these new parallel processing architectures. As one of the country’s leading schools in this field, I am personally delighted to appoint UIUC as our first CUDA Center of Excellence.”

CUDA and other GPGPU stuff has always sounded like bla bla bla to my ears. I don't expect GPGPU to be mainstream within 3+ years.

Wow, Nvidia is really pushing CUDA. Must really be worried about the competition. Nice to see them supporting schools though.
