GPUmat, MATLAB and COMSOL

Hi There,

I'm fairly novice in the area of accessing the GPU for parallel processing. I heard that MATLAB can run calculations on the GPU using the GPUmat software/toolbox. Has any one tried running COMSOL from matlab as a script to utilize that power?

This seems way more attractive than cluster computations.

Cheers,
Laith

Re: GPUmat, MATLAB and COMSOL

Sounds great, I agree. But, I think we will not see it in coming 2-3 years min.

GPUmat or Jacket are quite cool. Nevertheless, the use of gpu for FEM is at very early research stage. The institutes that I work with do not want to invest time unless CUDA (the langugage of nvidia gpu) comes very close to C++ and openmpi.
