Does ggplot2 have support for GPUs?


Since I like the smell of burning motherboards :fire::grinning:, I'd like creating plots with a lot of data points (> 10^6). I recently upgraded to a machine with a lot of memory and a GPU (a MacBook Pro). Does ggplot2 support GPUs? If not, would it make sense to add such support, or is it too complicated/unlikely to help?

PS I know everyone is using GPUs for Deep Learning today (including me :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:) but the AMD ones are useless in that respect, so I have to find another use for them, such as for example processing graphics :sweat_smile:
