Russian scientists from Lomonosov Moscow State University used an ordinary GPU-accelerated desktop computer to solve complex quantum mechanics equations in just 15 minutes that would typically take two to three days on a large CPU-only supercomputer. Senior researchers Vladimir Pomerantcev and Olga Rubtsova and professor Vladimir Kukulin used a GeForce GTX 670 with CUDA and…
