Einstein@Home GPU Application for ATI/AMD Graphics Cards
After more than a year of work by Oliver Bock, Bernd Machenschalk, Heinz-Bernd Eggenstein and other developers, we are pleased to announce the release of the first Einstein@Home application for ATI/AMD Graphics Cards.

This OpenCL application, which searches Arecibo data for new radio pulsars, is about a factor of ten faster than the same search running on a typical CPU. The application is currently available for Windows and Linux computers with Radeon HD 5000 or better graphics cards. We hope to have a version for Macintosh (Apple OS X 10.8, Mountain Lion) sometime this summer, but there are still some problems that need to be fixed or worked around.

Volunteers who wish to run this application will need to install version 7.0.27 or later of the BOINC client. Please see this thread for more information, or if you want to ask questions.

Many thanks to the AMD/ATI team for their support in the OpenCL software development effort.

Director, Einstein@Home

Congratulations and thank you to all Einstein@Home volunteers: sometime shortly after January 1st 2013, Einstein@Home passed the 1 Petaflop computing-power barrier. To put this in context, according to the current (November 2012) Top-500 computing list, there are only 23 computers on our planet that deliver this much computing power.

(One Petaflop is 1,000,000,000,000,000 floating point operations per second.)

Congratulations and thank you again, and keep on crunching!

Podakovanie a gratulacia pre vsetkych dobrovolnikov v projekte Einstein@home: Po 1 januari 2013 prekrocil projekt Einstein@home vypoctovy vykon 1 Petaflop. Aby sme to mohli porovnat v sirsom kontexte, podla nedavneho Top 500 vypoctoveho zoznamu (z Novembra 2012), iba 23 dalsch superpocitacov dodava takyto vypocetny vykon.

(jeden Petaflop je 1,000,000,000,000,000 operacii s pohyblivou ciarkou za sekundu.)

Blahozelam a znovu dakujem... neprestavajte crunchovat!
