GPU-Accelerated Supercomputers Create Largest Simulation of the Universe

Originally published at: GPU-Accelerated Supercomputers Create Largest Simulation of the Universe | NVIDIA Technical Blog

To investigate the nature of dark matter and dark energy, researchers from University of Zurich simulated the formation of our entire universe with the help of two GPU-accelerated supercomputers. With their revolutionary code called PKDGRAV3, the group of astrophysicists developed a catalog of nearly 25 billion virtual galaxies generated from a two-trillion particle cosmological simulation…
