VASP on GPUs with OpenACC

By

Stefan Maintz

Dev Tech Manager – Life-Sciences and Quantum Chemistry Applications

Abstract

VASP is a software package for atomic-scale materials modeling. It is one of the most widely used codes for electronic-structure calculations and first-principles molecular dynamics. This presentation will give an overview on the status of availability of VASP on GPU accelerated computing with OpenACC version 6.1.

The presentation will provide the necessary steps to compile VASP for GPUs and also cover best practices on how to achieve best performance when running VASP on GPUs. Benchmarks of typical VASP uses cases will demonstrate the merit of running the OpenACC port of VASP. 

About Speaker

As a Developer Technology engineer, Stefan Maintz has lead NVIDIA’s efforts on VASP in close collaboration with VASP Software GmbH and worked on other applications from the same domain. Recently he switched to a new role as DevTech Manager and his group focusses on accelerating Life Science and Computational Chemistry applications.

  • Toward next-generation molecule-based magnets

    Magnets are deployed in a range of technology applications, including satellites, telephones and refrigerator doors. However, they are made up of heavy, inorganic materials whose component elements are, in some cases, of limited availability.

  • Direct X-ray and electron-beam lithography of halogenated zeolitic imidazolate frameworks

    Nature Materials, Published online: 26 October 2020; doi:10.1038/s41563-020-00827-xThe low dielectric constants and high porosity of MOFs are of interest for applications in electronics and sensors, but patterning techniques for these materials are in their infancy. Here, direct X-ray and electron-beam lithography at sub-50-nm resolution are reported that leave porosity and crystallinity intact.

  • Printable two-dimensional superconducting monolayers

    Nature Materials, Published online: 26 October 2020; doi:10.1038/s41563-020-00831-1A mild electrochemical exfoliation method has been developed to obtain large-size two-dimensional superconductor monolayers with high crystallinity and production yield, which enables the easy fabrication of twisted van der Waals heterostructures and printed films.

  • Video: Golem, the clay creature of Jewish lore

    When we think about ceramics in history, we typically think of ancient pottery and art. But clay also is the material used to create an animated anthropomorphic being in Jewish lore called a golem. In the spirit of Halloween, today’s CTT takes a look at the history of this creature and depictions of it in contemporary media. The post Video: Golem, the clay creature of Jewish lore appeared first on The American Ceramic Society.
