Is it possible to add GPU accelerated scanning? It slows to a crawl when actively scanning a website, with CPU being maxed out. Thought if a powerful GPU is used, it would cut down on the time it needs to analyse the site etc.

Thanks for the suggestion, Russell. GPU accelerated scanning isn't something we are likely to implement. However, we are continuing to work on the stability and performance of Burp Scanner. Regarding your slow-scan issue; Is the issue limited to once application? Or across all sites? Is the application JavaScript-heavy? If so, have you tried turning off the JavaScript analysis function?
