Vratis and AMD FirePro team collaborate to port Vratis’ SpeedIT technology to OpenCL

Posted by Tony DeYoung on March 04, 2013

Vratis announced a collaboration with the AMD FirePro team to bring OpenCL acceleration to Vratis’ SpeedIT technology for OpenFOAM and physical simulations.
The library can be used in a wide spectrum of domains such as computational fluid dynamics (CFD), electromagnetics, thermodynamics, materials, acoustics, computer vision and graphics, robotics, semiconductor devices and structural engineering.

The implementation of OpenCL support will bring OpenFOAM to the wider range of users and provide the first steps towards acceleration of CFD on OpenCL-enabled devices.

From the press release: “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.”
