My group has acquired 8 of the fastest GPU cards in the market: NVIDIA V100 32GB cards. This was thanks to being awarded 0.5 million Danish kroner from the Strategic Funds 2018 by the National Space Institute (Denmark). We are now able to run complete Earth climate benchmark tests in less than 5 minutes in a single card.
The new hardware is part of a new cluster that we are building to simulate and analyse planetary climates. The model is tailored to be a powerful tool in the interpretation of observational data. The Foundation will keep growing in power to become a fundamental tool in the study of planetary climates and search for signatures of life.
