    NCI’s GPU infrastructure grows

    NCI has augmented its growing segment of GPU infrastructure with 8 new Pascal P100 GPU accelerators from NVIDIA. These new accelerators represent the next-generation of graphics processors for supercomputing. As evidenced by the rapid uptake and continuing demand for the 120 Kepler K80 GPUs installed in the past year, there is clear interest in the Australian computational research community for GPUs as part of future HPC infrastructure. Certain programs are particularly suited to the strengths of GPUs. Widely used chemistry packages such as VASP, NAMD and GROMACS have all been optimised ... Read More
