In this paper we present our results in adapting a Spiking Neural P system (SNP system) simulator to a high performance graphics
processing unit (GPU) platform. In particular, we extend our simulations to larger and more complex SNP systems using an NVIDIA Tesla C1060
GPU. The C1060 is manufactured for high performance computing and massively parallel computations, matching the maximally parallel nature of SNP systems. Using our GPU accelerated simulations we present speedups of around 200× for some SNP systems, compared to CPU only
