GTC Japan, July 25 -- NVIDIA today announced that MSC Software Corp., a leader in multi-discipline simulation software solutions, has released a GPU-accelerated version of the Marc 2012 Finite Element Analysis application, which speeds up a range of engineering simulations.
Engineers seeking to solve complex manufacturing and design problems can use Marc 2012, supported by NVIDIA® Tesla® GPUs, to accelerate engineering simulations by two to six times. This enables engineers to develop more realistic models and higher quality simulations, with increased productivity and faster development cycles.
"The combination of GPU acceleration and Marc's multi-physics capabilities allows engineers to better capture true nonlinear behavior, resulting in dramatic design improvements across a range of models and industries," said Ted Wertheimer, senior director of product management at MSC Software. "Marc 2012 helps engineers optimize their designs in less time, enabling them to deliver products to market faster than ever."
Andrew Cresci, general manager for ISV Strategic Alliances at NVIDIA, said: "GPU-accelerated Marc 2012 enables engineers to run more high-fidelity design simulations in a given period of time. They can identify issues faster and deliver better, higher-performing products. In the case of the auto industry, this could mean improved powertrain reliability through better thermal management, longer-lasting transmission components with the design of more rugged rubber boots and seals, and better fuel efficiency."
Marc is a powerful, general-purpose, advanced nonlinear and multi-physics solution that accurately simulates the response of a range of products under static, dynamic and multi-physics loading scenarios. It enables engineers to easily simulate complex real world behavior of mechanical systems, including automotive and aerospace components, oil and gas drilling equipment, construction machinery, and medical devices, enabling them to solve complex manufacturing and design problems within a single environment.
Marc 2012 supports single- and multi-GPU system configurations, and is available for x86-based Windows 64-bit and Linux 64-bit systems. For more information or to purchase Marc 2012, contact MSC Software.
About NVIDIA Tesla GPUs
NVIDIA Tesla GPUs are massively parallel accelerators based on the NVIDIA CUDA® parallel computing platform and programming model. Tesla GPUs are designed from the ground up for power-efficient, high performance computing, computational science and supercomputing, delivering dramatically higher application acceleration for a range of scientific and commercial applications than a CPU-only approach.

NVIDIA (NASDAQ: NVDA) awakened the world to computer graphics when it invented the GPU in 1999. Today, its processors power a broad range of products from smartphones to supercomputers. NVIDIA's mobile processors are used in cell phones, tablets and auto infotainment systems. PC gamers rely on GPUs to enjoy spectacularly immersive worlds. Professionals use them to create 3D graphics and visual effects in movies and to design everything from golf clubs to jumbo jets. And researchers utilize GPUs to advance the frontiers of science with high performance computing. The company has more than 5,000 patents issued, allowed or filed, including ones covering ideas essential to modern computing. For more information, see www.nvidia.com.
