Petascale Molecular Dynamics Simulations on GPU-Accelerated Supercomputers
Abstract:

The highly parallel molecular dynamics code NAMD was chosen in 2006 as a target application for the NSF petascale supercomputer now know as Blue Waters. NAMD was also one of the first codes to run on a GPU cluster when G80 and CUDA were introduced in 2007. How do the Cray XK6 and modern GPU clusters compare to 300,000 CPU cores for a hundred-million-atom Blue Waters acceptance test? Come learn the opportunities and pitfalls of taking GPU computing to the petascale and the importance of CUDA 4.0 features in combining multicore host processors and GPUs in a legacy message-driven application.
