Does PI support GPU acceleration?
« on: 2016 December 27 10:24:39 »
Hello PI team,
I saw the following on the website.

We plan on implementing GPU acceleration using the CUDA development platform. GPU acceleration will be integrated at a low level with our PixInsight Class Library C++ development framework, so it will be available to the PixInsight core application—including native implementations of JavaScript runtime objects—and most existing tools. Hopefully the first GPU-accelerated versions of PixInsight will become available during 2015. Stay tuned!

Is it already implemented? If not, can you please provide a revised timeline?

Thanks and Regards,
Keerthi

I think there was a subsequent report that basically said, don't hold your breath.  I now think this is on the back, back burner.

Really, are clear skies, low wind and no moon that much to ask for?

Thanks jkmorse.
They should at least update their website!
