The exciting news: We are seeing that we can accelerate time to market at lower costs with GPUs.

Our RAPIDS Origin Story

The more we dug in, the more we were impressed with improvements in the computing times we could achieve using RAPIDS compared to CPU solutions. Not even CPU-based Apache Spark came close.

This exploration isn’t just for us – it’s a catalyst for a larger RAPIDS community

On this quest toward more efficient computing, you’ll find benchmarks using RAPIDS, insights on applying it, implementations on GPU, and every other cool thing we are working on in this space.
