In this video, Dan Olds from Gabriel Consulting visits the CreativeC booth at the GPU Technology Conference. As an HPC Consulting company, CreativeC builds scalable computing solutions and video wall display systems.

One of the coolest things was a demo of their new Scorpii project. Scorpii is a visualization system. At the show, it used two systems with six GPUs to generate a Toy-based molecular dynamics model and another system with three GPUs to project the model on nine displays in real time. It’s an affordable platform that allows researchers to generate their simulations and visualize the results quickly, rather than wait hours for the program to execute on a traditional supercomputer. On the video, Tim Thomas, physicist and Deputy Director of UNM Advanced Research Computing (also a CreativeC consultant) walks me through the simulation.
