We can reuse most of the wording that describes Snappy already. Here’s a suggested description for the new filter. Please feel free to adjust as needed.

Snappy-CUDA is a compression/decompression library that leverages GPU processing power to compress/decompress data. The Snappy compression algorithm does not aim for maximum compression or compatibility with any other compression library; instead, it aims for very high speeds and reasonable compression. For instance, compared to the fastest mode of zlib, the reference implementation of Snappy on the CPU is an order of magnitude faster for most inputs, but the resulting compressed files are anywhere from 20% to 100% bigger.
