Description

Extensions to user docs are needed that explain what the new offload capabilities are in terms of:
  • offload of the new tasks
  • new code-path that can do most steps between search steps on GPU
  • list of supported features with a clear explanation that we still rely on offoad, but now on "regular" steps we can offload work to the CPU:
    • thi allows supporting features like FE, and
    • can also allow getting better performance (more on this when we have data!)
