Accelerating Molecular Dynamics Simulations with GPUs
Molecular dynamics simulations are known to run for many days or weeks before completion. In this paper we explore the use of GPUs to accelerate a LennardJones-based molecular dynamics simulation of up to 27000 atoms. We demonstrate speedups that exceed 100x on commodity Nvidia GPUs and discuss the strategies that allow for such exceptional speedups. We show that traditional molecular dynamics simulations can be greatly improved from a runtime of over 1 day to 18 minutes.
