NVIDIA Application Lab at Jülich

NVIDIA Application Lab at Jülich

The NVIDIA Application Lab at Jülich is jointly operated by Jülich Supercomputing Centre (JSC) and NVIDIA since July 2012. The main focus of this exascale lab is to

  • Enable scientific applications for GPU-based architectures
  • Provide support for their optimization
  • Investigate performance and scaling

A broad application portfolio encompassing computational neuroscience, high-energy physics, radio astronomy, data analytics and others has been established.

Other topics of the lab:

  • Parallelisation of applications on multiple GPUs
  • Application requirements analysis
  • Kepler and CUDA feature analysis
  • Training in GPU programming and optimization
