GPU computing?

Asked by Achim Schroll on 2010-03-26

Hi!
what is the developers feeling about GPU computing? Will FEniCS run on GPU clusters in future?
The background to the question is that SDU is hosting Denmarks largest supercomputer http://www.dcsc.sdu.dk/
At present applications for the next generation hardware are discussed and an obvious option is a GPU cluster.
Best, Achim

Yes!

I have a master student working on this (and there may be other
efforts). We will announce our plans once they start to materialize.
