ROBIN hardware 2019 - enough memory and power to handle hundreds of millions (billions) of voxels

  • Hardware example (Mats 2019 PC)
    • AMD Ryzen Threadripper 2990WX Prosessor - 32 cores
      • New generation 2019/2020 - 64 cores?
    • Memory - Corsair Vengeance LPX DDR4, 4000MHz
    • HDD - Corsair Force Series MP600 - PCI4: (4950/4250) * 2 MB/s (RAID 0)
    • UH-IaaS - Uninet CPU cluster (Vegard is working with USIT to install Matlab distributed computing toolbox)
  • Software
    • Matlab 2019
    • Support for multicore CPU and distributed CPU cluster
      • "parfor n=1:x" versus "for n=1:x"
    • Easy support for GPU, FEM matrix inversion example:

          gpuGLK = gpuArray(GLK);

          gpuF = gpuArray(F);

          gpuQ = gpuGLK\gpuF;

          Q = gather(gpuQ);
