Fuzzy Logix, LLC
, the market leader of GPU analytics, working with
, the leader in high-performance, low-latency computing, announces the release of
, which allows R users to access the power of NVIDIA Tesla and Kepler GPUs.
R is one of the most widely used languages for modeling, but performance can be constrained due to lack of parallelism and memory limitations. With over 500 models, Fuzzy Logix's
is the highest performing and most complete library of GPU-based analytics available. The Tanay Rx library combines the ease of use of R with the performance of the Tanay Zx library. The Tanay Rx library is the perfect prescription to cure performance issues with R.
According to CEO
, "Using Tanay Rx allows R users to run their models 10X to 100X faster. As an example of computational speed, the calculations for intra-day risk of equity, interest rate and FX options, corresponding to 1 billion future scenarios, can be performed in milliseconds."
GPUs are hyper-efficient at performing mathematical computations in parallel using hundreds (or thousands) of cores to deliver speed that is unmatched by CPU-based architectures. One of the challenges to adoption is that users must learn specialized languages and parallelize their models to get optimal performance. With the earlier release of the Tanay Zx library, Fuzzy Logix eliminated these issues by making it possible for programmers to use almost any language to run models with .net, .dll or shared object calls. The introduction of Tanay Rx further broadens adoption by adding the ability to run models using R. The types of available models include matrix operations,
simulations, data mining, financial mathematics for equities and fixed income and time series analysis.
