Welcome to the R/GPU Project Website

R/GPU is a user-friendly package that can evaluate any given R expression by making transparent use of an NVIDIA Graphics Processing Unit (GPU) through CUDA.

Source access

For the latests, unstable, version checkout the source using anonymous SVN:

  svn co rgpu

The source code on the SVN contains Makefiles for all supported operating systems. Also available from SVN is the alpha version of the R/GPUTools package, a small template project that can be used to create custom GPU functions without the need to concern about data management. An included example shows the GPU version of the R diff function with just 10 lines of C-code.

See the Downloads section for (binary) releases and documentation.


Development on R/GPU will continue in the near future. For an overview of new features and bug fixes to come in future releases, please check the Roadmap and Tickets section.
