June news from Cresset

BlazeGPU released

The release of BlazeGPU is the culmination of Cresset’s 18 month project to port our core algorithms to these exciting devices. We have achieved a fantastic 50x speed-up using consumer hardware and are looking forward to both increased Blaze search speeds and the new science that these enable. Critical to the implementation is the fact that BlazeGPU takes no shortcuts, returning results with equal accuracy to previous versions.

BlazeGPU is available as software, software as a service and through Cresset’s consulting services. Find out more.
