26 Mar 2012 Santa Clara - The two most powerful supercomputers in Russia will use NVIDIA GPUs to address some of the world's most challenging scientific problems across a broad range of fields.

Underscoring the dramatic growth in the adoption of GPU computing across world scientific communities, the new Russia Top 50 supercomputer list reveals that the top two systems are accelerated by NVIDIA Tesla GPUs. These two supercomputers are housed at Lomonosov Moscow State University, which was recently named a CUDA Center of Excellence, and the Joint Supercomputer Center of the Russian Academy of Sciences (JSCC RAS). Moreover, GPUs are accelerating 12 of the country's top 50 systems - up from seven just six months ago.

"The challenges of modern science can only be addressed by applying huge computational resources", stated Vladimir Voevodin, co-ordinator of the Supercomputing Consortium of Russian Universities and deputy director of the MSU Research Computing Center. "NVIDIA GPU technologies are one of the most efficient and cost-effective ways to address these challenges."

Russian scientists are using NVIDIA Tesla GPUs to accelerate scientific research and discovery for a range of important research projects today, and plan to increase the number GPU-accelerated projects in the future. For example, researchers at IMM UB RAS plan to harness their computational power to accelerate algorithms designed to navigate the Soyuz-2-class carrier rocket, determining an optimal orbit trajectory and ensuring a safe arrival at the target orbit.

Researchers at the Institute of Applied Physics of the Russian Academy of Sciences are using NVIDIA GPUs to run their optic biomedicine diagnostic method, which is aimed at facilitating early detection of cancer, 100 times faster than on a CPU-based system.

Researchers at OJSC "Aviadvigatel" are using NVIDIA GPUs for acoustic noise generation modelling of aircraft engines. By adding NVIDIA GPUs to a CPU-based system, Aviadvigatel reduced the computational time required to run flow modeling simulations from a month to just three days, enabling more complex and accurate simulations. Armed with this information, Aviadvigatel is working to produce quieter, more efficient aircraft engine designs.

"NVIDIA GPUs are enabling game-changing research on some of the most powerful supercomputers around the world, including systems in China, Italy, Japan, Russia, Spain, and the U.S.", stated Sumit Gupta, senior director of Tesla business at NVIDIA. "This tremendous growth is not only due to the vast computational performance and power efficiency GPUs provide, but also because of industry innovations like the OpenACC programming model that make GPU programming easier than ever before."
