This paper presents a fast method for global search of atomic structures. The structures global optimization (SGO) engine consists of a high-efficiency differential evolution algorithm, accelerated local relaxation methods and an ultrafast density functional theory plane-wave code run on GPU machines. It can search the global minimum configuration of crystals, two-dimensional materials and quantum clusters in a very short time (half or several hours). The engine is also able to search the energy landscape of a given system, which is useful for exploration of materials properties for emerging applications.
