Summary
We are excited to announce the release of GPU processing capability for the Help Conquer Cancer project!

This capability allows our members to contribute using their machines' graphics cards, thus giving our community of volunteers another avenue to advance the Help Conquer Cancer research project.

Earlier this year, the Help Conquer Cancer researchers published a paper explaining the reimplementation of their algorithms to take advantage of high-performing GPU hardware. You may review an abstract of the paper and access it here

In addition, you may learn more about GPU processing by reviewing WCG FAQ's FAQs and by visiting our GPU Forum.

We sincerely thank all of our members for the computing power that they donate to advance the Help Conquer Cancer research project.
