Vratis’ collaboration with AMD

Vratis and AMD will collaborate jointly on porting Vratis’ SpeedIT technology to OpenCL.

Vratis, a company that develops GPU-based software for virtual microscopy and computational fluid dynamics for medicine, research and education is pleased to announce a joint project with AMD, the world leading producer of graphic cards.  The project will focus on the further expansion of Vratis’ SpeedIT technology aimed at acceleration of OpenFOAM and physical simulations.

Vratis CEO Dr. Lukasz Miroslaw acknowledges that “OpenCL will bring OpenFOAM to the wider range of users and provide the first steps towards acceleration of CFD on OpenCL-enabled devices.

“With SpeedIT, Vratis has demonstrated its ability to develop  products that are capable of efficiently utilizing the massively parallel compute capability of today’s graphics processors,” said David Cummings, senior director of AMD Professional Graphics. “We want to support their efforts to move their leading-edge SpeedIT product into an OpenCL-based environment so that a much larger user base has access to a tremendous tool for computational fluid dynamic research and simulation.”

SpeedIT 2.3 is out

What’s new in SpeedIT 2.3

  • New Incomplete Cholesky Preconditioner from CUDA 5.0
  • Up to 5x faster intra-GPU communication (GPU Direct)
  • Bandwith up to 300 GB/s (NVIDIA Keppler)
  • New Options in OpenFOAM Plugin
