xVA - Coping with the Tsunami of Compute Load
Jorg Lotze and Hicham Lahlou


This article gives an overview of the different xVA adjustments, such as CVA, DVA, and FVA, shows how they are typically computed, and outlines where the computational complexities lie. We give recommendations on how to achieve high performance, portability, and scalability for centralised in-house xVA implementations. We show how, by careful software design, we can easily harness, not only the power of multi-core CPUs, but also accelerator co-processors such as graphic processing units (GPUs) and the Intel Xeon Phi.
