Synopsis In this work we present the analysis of the numerical performance and accuracy of the Monte Carlo Event Generator method applied to the double ionization of Neon by fast electrons. This implementation of the code runs in Graphics Processing Units, giving a clear advantage over other computational approaches. The code can provide five hundred cross sections per second with the optimal configuration, an order of magnitude faster than CPU counterparts.
