...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.
