...the new development, OpenCL computations, has been tested and launched...

  • Users now have the opportunity to exploit this technology for themselves when using the indoor sound particle model.
  • Many types of indoor calculations in SoundPLAN run much faster using OpenCL.
  • OpenCL calculations can significantly accelerate calculation times for a broad range of sound particle jobs because the hardware it exploits is designed to perform mathematical operations on data with a high degree of parallelism.
  • The potential acceleration depends on the performance of the hardware, the geometry being simulated, the type of computation required, and the parameters being calculated, but these tools frequently offer advantages.
  • If the hardware allows, it is possible to use the CPU and the GPU simultaneously to maximise the computing power of the PC.
  • All common graphics cards (Nvidia, AMD) are supported.
