The Maryland CPU-GPU Cluster is a unique computational infrastructure that leverages the synergistic cluster coupling of CPUs, GPUs, displays, and storage.
- Build upon the synergies afforded by coupling CPUs, GPUs (graphics processing units), displays, and storage.
- Driving Force: Evolution of GPUs into powerful, programmable, and inexpensive stream processors.
- Explore interleaved computation and display using multiple networks on the same cluster.
- Explore mapping several applications to this heterogenous and unique computational infrastructure.
- High-performance Computing - Querying and Visualization of Large Scientific Datasets
- Scientific Computing - Multi-particle Dynamics, Fast Multipole Method, Linear Programming
