Vector Computers and GPUs

Hello all,


I am currently in the process of research of GPGPU computing and have a very simple and basic question.  Does anyone know the actual difference between the old vector computers (e.g., CRAYs) and the modern GPUs (e.g., FERMI).  Use to be that vector registers could be an actual difference but with the newer architectures this is becoming less definitive.


Thank you.
