NVIDIA GPU Research Center

GRC-LogoWell, that is something. We have applied to become an NVIDIA GPU Research Center, and NVIDIA said “yes”. So, beginning summer 2015 (which at this point is already over) TU Wien now hosts a GPU Research Center at our institute (Institute for Microelectronics). At this point, there is only one other NVIDIA center in Austria (more information..). So, together with Karl(i) Rupp (who takes the lead here) and Florian Rudolf, we will further tune our free open source linear algebra library ViennaCL to the newest accelerator hardware. Additionally, we will investigate specific application areas based on finite element and on multigrid methods.
