“NumbaPro is a powerful compiler that takes high-level Python code directly to the GPU producing fast-code that is the equivalent of programming in a lower-level language. It contains an implementation of CUDA Python as well as higher-level constructs that make it easy to map array-oriented code to the parallel architecture of the GPU.”
