In this paper an inverse preconditioner for the numerical solution of an elliptic Laplace prob- lem of a global circulation ocean model is presented. The inverse preconditiong technique is adopted in order to efficiently compute the numerical solution of the elliptic kernel by using the Conjugate Gradient (CG) method. We show how the performance and the rate of convergence of the solver are linked to the discretized grid resolution and to the Laplace coefficients of the oceanic model. Finally, we describe an easy-to-implement version of the solver on the Graphical Processing Units (GPUs) by means of scientific computing libraries and we discuss its performance.

Free GPU computing nodes at hgpu.org

Registered users can now run their OpenCL application at hgpu.org. We provide 1 minute of computer time per each run on two nodes with two AMD and one nVidia graphics processing units, correspondingly. There are no restrictions on the number of starts.

The platforms are

Node 1
  • GPU device 0: nVidia GeForce GTX 560 Ti 2GB, 822MHz
  • GPU device 1: AMD/ATI Radeon HD 6970 2GB, 880MHz
  • CPU: AMD Phenom II X6 @ 2.8GHz 1055T
  • RAM: 12GB
  • OS: OpenSUSE 13.1
  • SDK: nVidia CUDA Toolkit 6.5.14, AMD APP SDK 3.0
Node 2
  • GPU device 0: AMD/ATI Radeon HD 7970 3GB, 1000MHz
  • GPU device 1: AMD/ATI Radeon HD 5870 2GB, 850MHz
  • CPU: Intel Core i7-2600 @ 3.4GHz
  • RAM: 16GB
  • OS: OpenSUSE 12.3
  • SDK: AMD APP SDK 3.0

Completed OpenCL project should be uploaded via User dashboard (see instructions and example there), compilation and execution terminal output logs will be provided to the user.
