compressing data with gpgpu

Hi guys,

I’ve seen some discussions at this forum about compressing data with GPGPU. We know that serial compression on a single block of the entire file don’t have purpose to run at GPU, ok this isn’t the point. We already know that exist algorithms that split the file to be compressed and compress each part of it in one core of the CPU, so that’s our point.

There is any implementation of that to run under GPU? Some test? Some complete article? Some mature project?

I’m asking because I’m thinking about implement it for my graduate final work.

Entering the search terms GPU and compression into Google Scholar results in a long list of papers dealing with any number of general purpose and special purpose compression algorithms. Since this is a fairly young and wide field there should be ample opportunity to drive the state of the art forward with fresh ideas.
