Climate Modelling Progress Update

ESSENSE is now enabled to run on a single GPU using OpenMP directives. Benchmark tests were carried out on Kebnekaise at HPC2N, with Intel Xeon E5-2690v4 (Broadwell) CPU and NVIDIA Tesla V100 GPU.

However, the speed is about 20% slower than the OpenACC version. Compared to a single CPU, a 33 times speedup was obtained for the lower resolution and about 50x for a higher resolution.
