Title: Effects of GPU, AAD and XVA on the Future Computing Architecture of Banks
Abstract: The 2008 crisis has tremendously changed the way we approach financial computing in the banks. While the complexity and diversity of traded products have been reduced, volumes and regulatory computations needs have exploded while budgets became tight and we do not see any relief in the future. Several solutions including GPU– powerful parallel coprocessor – , AAD– an algorithm – or both of them have been implemented to cope with today workload. All these methods imply at least a partial rewrite of the code. We will come back on our experience and see how well each solution fit different test cases with current or future hardware and extrapolate how the future calculation servers of banks will look like.
