New preprint: dadi on GPUs

By | August 3, 2020

We’ve long known that the core numerical algorithm in dadi is in principle amenable to acceleration through GPU computing. We have now implemented GPU computing in dadi, and the results are spectacular. We see speed ups of over 100x comparing GPUs and CPUs on the same systems. And enabling this speed requires only a single user command. The new feature is described in our bioRxiv preprint, and it is available in dadi 2.1.0.
