Hi folks,
I'm happy to announce, we have finally tamed parallel computing technology on GPU and re-invented ECC correction process!
For a starter, we have added a single-GPU usage for ECC/BCH correction into VNR 4.0 software update.
Our tests show that it's possible to achieve 8-10x time decrease (performance increase?) for ECC correction now, especially on longer ECC codes (short ones are easy for GPU to compute so most of the time it's I/O of VRAM - SSD that consumes time).
Haven't tested it on RTX30xx yet though, hope will do soon (but I can project ~30x increase on those cards).
Check HERE for mode details.

My personal feedback (or feelings?) :)
Honestly, I personally feel like a huge relief after years of pain....when I tested it first time on a decent GPU, I got shocked (and I've seen a lot during my RnD years!) and had a very stupid smile on my face. One problem less...

For non-gamers/non-miners:
Even built-in GPU like in Core i7 can make job done 25-35% faster without any additional investment.

For gamers/miners:
Yeeah...!! Now you got a legit excuse to buy a decent graphic card and your second half can wait with the new outfit/bag/gym club card/whatever it is!

We'll keep on advancing and moving more functions to GPU. Have fun!

Wow ,
Thats great news once you are recovering from your illness .Is there a way to enable/disable gpu support in VNR ,Not tried Ver 4.0 Update .Also GPU capability these days is far better the CPU ,In older years too the GPU cores way outnumber the CPU .Very nice addon .
