PRESS RELEASE

Amber 11

Amber 11 is a software tool that enables bio-scientists to harness the power of supercomputing on their desktop PC. It is optimised to run on Nvidia GPUs, which speed up the tool by up to 100-fold over a traditional CPU-based server. GPUs deliver performance from a desktop workstation that previously could only be achieved on a supercomputer, improving productivity as scientists no longer need to wait for time on a shared supercomputer or departmental cluster of servers.

Amber 11 is designed to take advantage of Nvidia Tesla 20-series GPUs, which utilise the massively parallel Cuda architecture for the specific needs of high performance computing applications.
