Emerald is a GPGPU cluster: a specialist platform for performing computing on Graphics Processing Units (GPUs). By using the hundreds of computational cores found in GPU accelerators it is capable of performing some operations more than an order of magnitude faster than traditional CPUs. Popular uses include ray tracing, machine learning, image processing, molecular dynamics and protein folding calculations. Emerald will not be extended past its current service end date of the 31st July 2017 and access is being withdrawn after that point.
