Todd MartinezCUDA-Accelerated Quantum Chemistry
This week’s Spotlight features Professor Todd Martinez of Stanford. His research lies in the area of theoretical chemistry, emphasizing development of new methods which accurately capture quantum mechanical effects. These effects are crucial in understanding chemical bonding, molecular transformations and reactions involving light. Read the Spotlight.


Bin ZhouNew CUDA Fellow
Bin Zhou is an adjunct research professor at the University of Science and Technology of China (USTC), where he established a CUDA Teaching Center and trained 500+ developers and students in CUDA programming. Read the announcement.

New Beta from Mellanox
Mellanox announced the GPUDirect RDMA Beta. This new technology provides a significant decrease in GPU-GPU communication latency and completely offloads the CPU, removing it from GPU-GPU communications across the network. Melanox is a supplier of high-performance, end-to-end interconnect solutions.

New Licensing from ANSYS
ANSYS, a provider of engineering simulation products, updated its HPC/GPU licensing with ANSYS 15.0 to enable users to more easily take advantage of both CPUs and GPUs in ANSYS Mechanical and ANSYS Fluent simulations.
