The most important features are:

  • Multi-GPU support.
  • Tested on Fermi architecture (GTX460 and Tesla C2050).
  • Automated submission of the domain to the GPU cards (using decomposePar from OpenFOAM).
  • Optimized submission of computational tasks to the best GPU card in the system for any number of computational threads.
  • Plugin picks the most powerful GPU card for a single thread cases.

The OpenFOAM SpeedIT plugin is available at

Additionally, the SpeedIT Toolkit 1.0.1 has been released.

The library can be used in a wide spectrum of domains arising from problems with underlying 2D and 3D geometry, such as computational fluid dynamics, electromagnetics, thermodynamics, materials, acoustics, computer vision and graphics, robotics, semiconductor devices and structural engineering. The library can be also used for problems without defined geometry such as quantum chemistry, statistics, power networks and other graphs and chemical process simulation.

All computations are performed with single or double floating point precision. Two linear system solvers (Conjugate Gradient, BiConjugate Gradien Stabilized) and two preconditioners (Jakobi, diagonal) are supplied.
