View Full Version : MicroCFD now runs on CUDA enabled NVIDIA GPUs

10-11-12, 07:10 AM
The MicroCFD (http://www.microcfd.com/software.htm) Virtual Wind Tunnel, Educational & Professional Edition, has recently been upgraded. The new version (1.8) supports multi-core CPUs and CUDA (http://developer.nvidia.com/cuda/cuda-gpus) enabled GPUs and runs
significantly faster than the previous single-processor version. The results of a benchmark (http://www.microcfd.com/runtime.htm) test on a system with an Intel quad-core CPU and an NVIDIA 96-core GPU show that an unsteady 2D or axis-symmetric compressible flow can now be run at a resolution of one million cells (Pro Edition (http://www.microcfd.com/gallery/car-pro-m.htm)) within a few minutes. A 3D version is currently under development and is expected to be released in 2014.
