Particle swarm optimization is robust and effective method to solve optimization problems. Particle swarm optimization takes more time to find optimal solutions for complex real world problems. Execution time required to find optimal solutions depends on nature of problem as well as population and dimension size of the application. Compute intensive problems can be solved efficiently on general purpose graphics processing unit using particle swarm optimization to diminish processing time. Graphics processing unit is used to provide speed-up and to find optimal solutions of compute intensive problems earlier than central processing unit.
