The details of the graphical processing unit (GPU) implementation of the most computationally intensive (T)-part of the recently introduced regularized CCSD(T) (Reg-CCSD(T)) method [ Kowalski, K. ; Valiev, M. J. Chem. Phys. 2009, 131 , 234107 ] for calculating electronic energies of strongly correlated systems are discussed. Parallel tests performed for several molecular systems show very good scalability of the triples part of the Reg-CCSD(T) approach. We also discuss the performance of the Reg-CCSD(T) GPU implementation as a function of the parameters defining the partitioning of the spinorbital domain (tiling structure). The accuracy of the Reg-CCSD(T) method is illustrated on three examples: the methyfluoride molecule, dissociation of dodecane, and open-shell Spiro cation (5,5′(4H,4H’)-spirobi[cyclopenta[c]pyrrole] 2,2′,6,6′-tetrahydro cation), which is a frequently used model to study electron transfer processes. It is demonstrated that a simple regularization of the cluster amplitudes used in the noniterative corrections accounting for the effect of triply excited configurations significantly improves the accuracies of ground-state energies in the presence of strong quasidegeneracy effects. For methylfluoride, we compare the Reg-CCSD(T) results with the CR-CC(2,3) and CCSDT energies, whereas for Spiro cation we compare Reg-CCSD(T) results with the energies obtained with completely renormalized CCSD(T) method. Performance tests for the Spiro, dodecane, and uracil molecules are also discussed.
