Huygens GPU localization: Fast high-quality results!
The Huygens Software is well known for its fast processing and high-quality deconvolution results. For the Localizer we are archieving the same goal: accelarate with the GPU the SMLM data processing. Realize amazing localizations results within seconds using high-end NVIDIA GPU cards and the powerful Huygens localizations algorithms. The unique brick-splitting possibility is also available in the GPU mode, enabling you to localize very large files on the GPU, even with cards with limited video-RAM. After localization, use the GPU accelarated drift corrector to get fast your final result.

CPU vs GPU: what's the difference?
The Central Processing Unit (CPU) often consists of multiple individual Cores (typical 2-16 cores per CPU). The different cores can process different tasks in parallel. By using multiple cores in parallel this can speed up processes, such as localization. The Graphic Processing Unit (GPU) was primarily designed for handling graphics processing, notably in the gaming industry. The rapid development in GPUs over the past few years has led to powerful GPU cards that at present contain hundreds to thousands of individual cores per chip. In addition, current cards contain a significant amount of onboard video-RAM. In combination with the NVIDIA CUDA programming model, this has made the NVIDIA GPUs extremely suitable for performance increase in scientific computations. The Huygens localization can combine the processing of NVIDIA CUDA GPUs with CPU processing to accelerate the Huygens localization significantly.
GPU acceleration: How does GPU acceleration work?
With GPU acceleration, a small section of the application code that requires significant computation time is run on the GPU, while the remainder of the code is run on the CPU. The GPU consists of hundreds or even thousand of separate processing units (cores), thereby making it extremely efficient and fast to process compute intensive code. From the start of the Huygens Localizer, we have embraced the possibility to utilize these powerful NVIDIA CUDA enabled GPU's to accelerate the Huygens localization.
