Genetic algorithm, a robust, stochastic optimization technique, is effective in
solving many practical problems in science, engineering, and business domains. Unfortunatelly, execution usually takes a long time. In this paper, I study possibility of utilization consumer-level graphics cards for acceleration of GA's. A mapping of parallel island genetic algorithm to CUDA software model is designed and tested on GeForce 8800GTX, GTX260-SP216 and GTX285 GPU's using Rosenbrock's, Griewank's and Michalewicz's benchmark functions. Results indicates that this optimization leads to speedups up to seven thousand times compared to single CPU thread while maintaing reasonable results quality.
