very simple query about GPU

#1 Post by askhetan » Wed Jun 01, 2016 10:23 pm

I have seen in some presentations that there is passive support for scGW0 method for the GPU implementation of vasp. Could someone please clarify if they have used this method in GPU and if the support and implementation for this method is available now fully/partially now ? Hoping for a response from the developers.

Algorithms ported to run on GPU-accelerated hardware are summarized here: ... rt_of_VASP
GW method is for now unsupported.
Please note that in the development of the GPU port of vasp are involved many
people who are not members of the vasp team. You may have seen
a presentation of some of them working on GW.
