  • Description

    a heavily optimized molecular dynamics (MD) engine specially designed to run on NVIDA GPUs. It is extremely fast (115ns/day for DHFR using 1 GPU) and performs MD simulations on the microsecond scale in a single workstation. ACDMD can read CHARMM/NAMD and AMBER input files, works with CUDA and OpenCL, and uses similar syntax to other MD software.
