We have implemented experimental code to compute a compensated phase-added stereogram (CPAS), which was proposed in a previous paper, on a graphic processing unit (GPU). In this paper, we show an acceleration method for CPAS computation by means of the GPU and compare the computation time between CPU-based and GPU-based calculations, which are programmed in our laboratories. In addition, we demonstrate their reconstructed images. As a result, we could achieve a performance gain of a factor of over 33 compared with a CPU-based computing environment and digital holograms can be displayed at 30 frames per second with 15,000 points.
