Microway’s GPU-Accelerated Workstation for CST STUDIO SUITE®

Achieve a 14X Speedup with Tesla GPUs, CST STUDIO SUITE, and Microway

Microway’s NumberSmasher® GPU-accelerated platforms are now available pre-configured for CST STUDIO SUITE. They deliver accelerated performance in your office or lab. Rackmount Server with up to 4 or 8 GPUs for your server room are also available.

The high memory bandwidth and parallel processing abilities of GPUs provide significant simulation speed advantages over conventional CPU computing. CST STUDIO SUITE supports GPU computing in the transient solver, integral equation solver, transmission line matrix (TLM) solver and particle-in-cell (PIC) solver, using NVIDIA Tesal® or Quadro® GPUs.

GPU Performance of CST Microwave Studio Solvers

Tesla GPU and Quadro speedups over dual Xeon Scalable Gold 6148 CPU-only execution, as measured on a Microway NumberSmasher Servers and Quiet Workstations. CST STUDIO SUITE 2018. Solvers vary in size.

The above results were achieved by CST on a Microway NumberSmasher NVIDIA Tesla P100 GPUs. For benchmark results on other CST solvers – such as integral and particle-in-cell (PIC) – see .

Need more compute power? Our NumberSmasher servers can be linked together via 56Gbps and 100Gbps InfiniBand to provide a powerful HPC cluster for CST STUDIO SUITE.
