Acusim integrates support for Nvidia Tesla
Acusim Software has integrated support for Nvidia Tesla 20-series GPUs into the company's latest AcuSolve 1.8 release.
Performance tests of the general-purpose finite-element-based CFD flow solver have demonstrated up to a 2x boost in performance with the Tesla C2050 GPU processor, compared with the latest quad-core CPU running the same simulation.
AcuSolve is used in a broad range of mechanical design applications and deployed by research organisations and Fortune 500 companies including Bechtel, Chevron, John Deere, Procter & Gamble, Sanyo, Visteon and Whirlpool. They use CFD simulations to replace costly physical tests during product development, which leads to shorter design times and improved product quality.
