Nvidia Tesla K20 vs Intel Core i7: Speed Comparison

Jan 24, 2014

Simmakers Ltd, together with Nvidia and Forsite have tested the speed of a GPU version of the Frost 3D Universal software package for solving heat transfer problems on the Nvidia Tesla K20 system. The results have exceeded all expectations — the computation for an ice wall around the Fukushima Nuclear Power Plant was completed in under 6 minutes.

In order to carry out a detailed comparison of the computational speeds on systems with different configurations, Simmakers prepared special tests that included the following model dimensions:

1) 1 million cells (100x100x100);

2) 3.4 million cells (150x150x150);

3) 8 million cells (200x200x200);

4) 15.6 million cells (250x250x250);

5) 27 million cells (300x300x300);

6) 42.9 million cells (350x350x350);

7) 64 million cells (400x400x400);

8) 91 million cells (450x450x450).
