Do GPU provide faster training times?

Andy3Andy3 Member Posts: 7 Newbie

I have heard that Rapidminer have some similarities with H2O, so when I read the article (sefiks.com/2019/11/07/why-you-should-build-xgboost-models-within-h2o/) that the H2O library have some turbo-button when the GPU is enable I hope the same thing was applied in Rapidminer though I haven't been able to test this out. My impression has been that only the CPU has been the most important thing when trying to decrease training times with the GBT-algorithm. Could someone from RM verify that RM has the same turbo-button or not? :smile:

Best regards

    Hi @Andy3,

    we have GPU support for neural networks in the Deep Learning extension, but not (yet) for GBTs.

    Hope to have it soon in for the GBTs.

    Glad to hear that you do some work to update RM to latest stable version. Love to hear more about it :)
