NVIDIA CUDA™ Research Center

Project start /

Because of their leading research in numerical simulation using parallel computing practices, Fraunhofer SCAI and the Institute for Numerical Simulation at the University of Bonn have officially become one of the first German NVIDIA CUDA Research Centers. The research on parallelization of existing simulation codes to run on machines with multiple Graphics Processing Units (GPUs) is led by Prof. Dr. Michael Griebel.

In particular at SCAI the goal is to develop a massively parallel, completely multi-GPU based high-performance molecular dynamics software package. To this end, the SCAI software Tremolo-X is adapted. SCAI's customers from industry and research institutes profit from the ability to solve general challenges of high performance computing in this way.
