Are there any file compression programs using CUDA?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Are there any file compression programs that use CUDA instead of the CPU?

From what I understand, most current file compression algorithms are bottlenecks by the HDD speeds, but from what I remember there are a few file compression techniques that are bottle necked by the CPU.

So, I am asking if there are any programs out there like winzip and winrar and 7zip which use CUDA to extract and compress general files. Not specifically images or video or text.

I know of badaboom, but that is for videos only.

GPUs are really bad at integers.. so I wouldn't count on it.
