In 2012 a method to analyze N-body dark matter simulations using a tetrahedral tesselation of the three-dimensional dark matter manifold in six-dimensional phase space was introduced. This paper presents an accurate density computation approach for large N-body datasets, that is based on this technique and designed for massively parallel GPU-clusters. The densities are obtained by intersecting the tessellation with the cells of a spatially adaptive grid structure. We speed up this computational expensive part with an intersection algorithm, that is tailored to modern GPU architectures. We discuss different communication and dynamic load-balancing strategies and compare their weak and strong scaling efficiencies for several large N-body simulations.
