Monte Carlo eXtreme Publisher's description
from Qianqian Fang
Monte Carlo eXtreme, or MCX, is a Monte Carlo simulation software for time-resolved photon transport in 3D turbid media.
Monte Carlo eXtreme, or MCX, is a Monte Carlo simulation software for time-resolved photon transport in 3D turbid media. It uses Graphics Processing Units (GPU) based massively parallel computing techniques and is extremely fast compared to the traditional single-threaded CPU-based simulations. Using an nVidia 8800GT graphics card (14MP/114Cores), the acceleration is about 300x~400x compared to tMCimg running on a single core of Xeon 5120 CPU; this ratio can be as high as 700x with a GTX 280 GPU and 1400x with a GTX 470.
What's New in This Release:В· fix a regression in MCXLAB related to detectors, use exact exit position for radius test
В· add verbose warnings for launch-time-out error and non-surface detectors
В· users can specify srcfrom0 (origin setting) from the input file
В· fix a bug in detector-to-volume mapping, effects all non-integer inputs
System Requirements:В· a CUDA capable nVIDIA graphics card
В· pre-installed CUDA driver and nVIDIA graphics driver
Program Release Status: New Release
Program Install Support: Install and Uninstall
