You are absolutely right, it is a 2GB GPU, thanks for the info! Can I use more than 1 GPU for a simulation?

At the moment not yet officially. Dominic has worked on a multi-GPU extension, but finished shortly before going for a long lab course to LANL. I put him in CC, he can tell you more about how stable that thing is, but for sure it is still experimental.

Hi Markus,
yes, that is quite right. We need 19xN single precision float numbers per LB cell, times two, because we stream from one lattice to a second lattice to avoid race conditions.
200**3 cells *19 populations * 4 byte * 2 buffers=1216MB,
We need a bit more to save forces and so I'd conclude you have a 2GB GPU.

Hi all,

is the number of nodes with the LBM on GPU limited by hardware? When I choose too large simulation size, I get a CUDA out of memory error. Right now I am limited to around 8,320,000 nodes (200x200x208), after that it crashes.
