submitted by: JGI

DOE JGI's Zhong Wang, chair of the High-performance Computing session, gives a brief introduction before Berkeley Lab's Shane Canon talks about "Exploiting HPC Platforms for Metagenomics: Challenges and Opportunities" at the Metagenomics Informatics Challenges Workshop held at the DOE JGI on October 12-13, 2011.

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.

Modeling Early Galaxies Using Radiation Hydrodynamics

submitted by: btolo
This simulation uses a flux-limited diffusion solver to explore the radiation hydrodynamics of early galaxies, in particular, the ionizing radiation created by Population III stars. At the time of this rendering, the simulation has evolved to a redshift of 3.5. The simulation volume is 11.2 comoving megaparsecs, and has a uniform grid of 1024^3 cells, with over 1 billion dark matter and star particles. The simulation was computed on resources of the National Institute for Computational...
