In Natural Language Processing (NLP) applications, the main time-consuming process is string matching due to the large size of lexicon. In string matching processes, data dependence is minimal and hence it is ideal for parallelization. A dedicated system with memory interleaving and parallel processing techniques for string matching can reduce this burden of host CPU, thereby making the system more suitable for real-time applications. Now it is possible to apply parallelism using multi-cores on

Recent GPUs hold a large number of cores, and have a potential for high performance in many general purpose applications. Programming tools for multi-cores on CPU and a large number of cores on GPU have been formulated, but it is still difficult to achieve high performance on these platforms. In this paper, we compare the performance of single-core, multi-core CPU and GPU using such a Natural Language Processing application.
