When GPU mode will be back?
« on: December 23, 2017, 12:18:47 PM »
I remember, that in older versions there was GPU mode before there were some changes related to code.
It used to be much faster than old CPU mode and comparable (in my case) to new CPU mode.

GPU
Using Graphics card as processor for Universe Sandbox physics, as GPUs are much faster than CPUs in certain tasks.

I also wish they would bring this back as with my multi GPU system I have it would be ideal

I can't comment on our long-term plans, but right now our physics programmer's focus is on a rewrite of the physics code which should be much faster (and will still run on CPU). We hope to have this ready sometime relatively soon. After that, it's possible we will begin to look into GPU-accelerated physics.
