CPU vs GPU: AMBER Code Simulation

submitted by: btolo

The terminal view on the left shows a 'tail' of the AMBER code output for a simulation of Myoglobin, a protein found in muscle fibers. In this video, the output is being run on a single Intel E5462 2.80 GHz CPU. The terminal view on the right shows the same AMBER code output, but run on a single NVIDIA C1060 GPU. The GPU run is about 40 times faster than the CPU run.

'GlyphSea': A New Way to Visualize Vector Data

submitted by: btolo

Researchers at the San Diego Supercomputer Center (SDSC) and other organizations within the University of California, San Diego, have developed a novel way to encode and display vector data that clearly shows magnitude and direction. This new visualization technique may help seismologists to accurately analyze ground movements for an earthquake, measure magnetic turbulence in deep space, or allow medical researchers to study areas such as blood flow and nutrient absorption.
