[Beowulf] OpenFOAM and GPUs?

   I know little of OpenFOAM on GPUs.

However I would say that if you are looking for performance gains returns for your efforts,
look at compiling up the existing code with a modern GCC and use the AVX units on the latest
Xeons.   It is said that OpenFOAM will compile using the Intel compilers.

I would say that looking at Xeon Phi would be a better fit to OpenFOAM. I may be wrong.

No help to you as you already have GPUs !

Hi all,

Anyone know what the state of the art (if there is one) for OpenFOAM and
GPUs these days?

All I can find is old (2015) info on the OpenFOAM wiki and the RapidFOAM
stuff on Github which hasn't been touched for over a year ("Latest
commit 9fc614f on 9 Feb 2016"). :-(
