GPU Computing - CUDA
Modern Graphics Processing Units feature a large number of processing cores, in the case of the NVIDIA® Tesla™ 20 series there are 448. CST uses the high degree of parallelization provided with NVIDIA® CUDA™ (Compute Unified Device Architecture) to speed up the simulation dramatically.
GPU computing is available for CST MWS's transient solver. You will be able CST MWS simulations even faster while maintaining access to the performance determining features such as
Perfect Boundary Approximation (PBA)® and Thin Sheet Technology (TST)™. Many other important features of CST MWS are implemented, including open boundaries, lossy metals, dispersive materials, and far field monitors. Currently single card, dual card, and quad card configurations are supported.
Average relative speedup of solver loop using various NVIDIA® Tesla™ GPU’s; compared to 2x Intel® Xeon® E5620.
