MSC Software Marc 2012 can now be accelerated by Nvidia Tesla GPUs, offering a performance increase ranging from two to six times.

The 2012 release of Marc, the general-purpose, advanced nonlinear and multi-physics simulation software from MSC Software, can be accelerated by Nvidia GPUs. According to MSC Software, performance increases range from two to six times.

Marc 2012 supports single- and multi-GPU system configurations using Nvidia Tesla GPUs, and is available for x86-based Windows 64-bit and Linux 64-bit systems.
Last year, MSC software announced a CUDA-based GPU-accelerated version of its MSC Nastran 2012, Finite Element Analysis (FEA) application.

MSC Software is not the only simulation software developer to support GPU-acceleration. Ansys and DS Simulia unveiled GPU-powered simulation tools in 2010 and 2011.
