GPUs are currently used in many branches of Science. We present a program for using them in the context of the search for Gravitational Wave signals emitted by isolated neutron stars. This is a computationally bounded search and the GPUS permit a significant acceleration of the computational time, so that a deeper search in the parameter space can be performed.
