NVIDIA helps unravelling Universe Mysteries

The team will attempt to more closely analyze the behavior of subatomic particles and will be led by Ting-Wai Chiu, physics professor and associate director of the Center for Quantum Science and Engineering (CQSE).

The group will be the first research team to employ a GPU-based cluster in large-scale simulations of lattice QCD with an exact chiral symmetry. Still, what is most convenient about this cluster is the fact that it is capable of delivering 15 teraflops of computing power at only 1% of the total cost and only 10% of the power consumption of an equivalent (computationally wise) processor-based supercomputer.
