Researchers are using heterogeneous computing to push the limits of their discoveries.
Russian Geometric Rd Kernel (RGK) for CAD is a parallel computation kernel that has support for multi-threading (CPU) and GPU acceleration using OpenCL. The RGK kernel has the full set of tools to create models using solid, surface, and wire-frame modeling. Because it uses parallel computations, the application can work simultaneously with these different types of data within the same model.Learn More×
OpenFOAM SpeedIT plugin
OpenFOAM SpeedIT uses openCL to bring GPU-accelerated linear algebra to a wider range of users and provide the first steps towards acceleration of OpenFOAM on OpenCL-enabled devices. An OpenCL-based environment will provide a larger use base with this tremendous tool for computational fluid dynamics.Learn More×
SILULIA Abaqus/Standard, which takes advantage of the OpenCL™ industry standard, is a leading structural and multiphysics analysis solution which is used by a wide range of industries for simulating the lifelike performance of products throughout the design and manufacturing process. The OpenCL compliant release of Abaqus 6.11 enables design engineers to harness the power of GPU computing for 3D modeling, computation and visualization in high-performance parallel computing environments across an array of non-proprietary hardware platforms.Learn More×
Tools and Libraries
Developer tools and libraries are another type of application that are employing heterogeneous computing technologies.
OpenCL Math Library
The open source clMath library contains OpenCL implementations of common BLAS and FFT routines. A joint project with AMD and AccelerEyes, the library enables developers to accelerate scientific and engineering computations on APUs and discrete graphics accelerators. The project is licensed under the Apache License, Version 2.0 and is available at https://github.com/clMathLibraries.Learn More×
