We concentrated on two performance factors, namely the launching order of concurrent kernels and the kernel granularity. Extensive experiments show that the launching order of concurrent kernels can hardly affect application performance.
Given several highly publicized Amazon outages over the past year, we will be watching Amazon Web Services’ US-1 data center complex in Ashburn, Va. As one of the AWS customers GPU Science is vulnerable to Hurricane Sandy too. We hosted exactly at us-east-1 region.
The U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Oak Ridge National Laboratory launched a new era of scientific supercomputing today with Titan, a system capable of churning through more than 20,000 trillion calculations each second-or 20 petaflop
Computational biophysics research group of Professor Samuel Cho from Wake Forest University developed a novel parallel Verlet neighbor list algorithm for performing coarse-grained MD simulations of biologically relevant systems.
Our proposed method produces five-dimensional volumetric images that distinguish different materials at different points in time, and can be used to segment regions containing iodinated blood and compute measures of cardiac function.
As users and developers, we are witnessing the opening of a new computing scenario: the introduction of hybrid processors into a single die, such as an accelerated processing unit (APU) processor, and the plug-and-play of additional graphics processing units (GPUs) onto a single motherboard
The simulations, run using graphical processors (GPUs), were used to investigate the effect of conformational change upon binding of the NA inhibitors oseltamivir and zanamivir in the wild-type and the IR and IRHY mutant strains
Quantum ESPRESSO (QE) is an integrated suite of Open-Source computer codes for electronic-structure calculations and materials modeling at the nanoscale. It is based on density-functional theory, plane waves, and pseudopotentials
Authors present BINDSURF, a novel VS methodology that scans the whole protein surface in order to find new hotspots, where ligands might potentially interact with, and which is implemented in last generation massively parallel GPU hardware, allowing fast processing of large ligand databases.
Udacity, a company on a mission to democratize education, today announced it is partnering with technology leaders Google, NVIDIA, Microsoft, Autodesk, Cadence, and Wolfram to deliver a new series of free courses online at Udacity.com.
