Gurobi Announces Higher Solver Performance and New Features
Beaverton, OR, Oct 22, 2018 – Gurobi Optimization has released version 8.1 of its leading mathematical programming solver. This latest version improves the overall performance of Gurobi Optimizer, and adds enhancements to Gurobi Instant Cloud, including support for Microsoft Azure® and for the latest Amazon Web Services® machines, and more.
Performance testing using Gurobi’s test library, consisting of literally thousands of real-world models, shows significant improvements versus the already industry-leading Gurobi v8.0. Specifically, for mixed-integer quadratic programming models, v8.1 is 2.8X faster overall and more than a factor of 6x faster on difficult models that take more than 100 seconds to solve. For linear programming models, the dual simplex algorithm in v8.1 is 4.2% faster overall.
