Neo4j parallel runtime and GPU


Looks like Neo4j is naturally stepping into the world of parallel processing with the brand new parallel runtime in version 5.13.0.

Thus, I have a question: Is it possible with Neo4j to utilize GPU power for parallel processing instead of the CPU? If not, do you have plans to support it?


Solution

  • The Parallel Runtime is a very powerful mechanism for certain queries to parallelise the processing of a single query (though parallel processing isn't new when you have multiple parallel queries).

    However, GPU's are not supported by the parallel runtime and it is not really foreseen either.
