Fine Grained Computing

Image of Intel Co-Processor Architecture

A new generation of high-performance computing has emerged called Massively Parallel Fine Grain (MPFG).

Advance new HPCS technologies and develop techniques to enable the next-generation weather models to run efficiently on any type of next-generation HPCS architecture


Prepare NWP software to run on current and future computer architectures both fine-grain GPU and/or MIC and advanced CPU systems



Milestones and deliverables

Completed preparing the Non-hydrostatic Icosahedral Model (NIM) to run on fine-grain computing architecture.

Key performance measures

Models or components (eg. dynamics, physics) coded to run on Fine-grain Computing systems including GPUs (Graphics Processing Units) and MIC (Many Integrated Core)

R&D maturity level

Research, development and/or application
