Brytlyt, a PostgreSQL fork running on GPU, emerged as the world’s fastest database after industry expert Mark Litwintschik published independent benchmarking results showing it to outperform the previous title holder by a factor of 2x.


London, UK -- (ReleaseWire) -- 11/13/2017 --After independent benchmarking by the leading expert in GPU Databases, Mark Litwintschik, Brytlyt's GPU Database demonstrated astonishing performance to knock the previous holder from number one spot and take the title of the world's fastest GPU Database available on the market today.

Mark Litwintschik, who regularly runs a 1.1 billion row benchmark on GPU databases found that Brytlyt was more than twice as fast as the vendor in second place. Full details of the benchmark can be found on his website at

Mark Litwintschik said, "BrytlytDB is now the fastest database I've benchmarked. It is built on top of PostgreSQL and supports all its features. It's incredible to think that the fastest OLAP setup I've come across is effectively PostgreSQL running on a few GPUs."

"Getting a GPU database to perform at its theoretical potential is not trivial and I am delighted with the way our engineering team has used our patent pending intellectual property to deliver groundbreaking technology" said Richard Heyns, CEO of Brytlyt. "Brytlyt is a fork of PostgreSQL, making it not only the fastest database in the world but also the most advanced and feature-rich."
