Dear G4 developers and users. I would like to learn from you if anyone tried to run g4 simulations in parallel jobs using processors of video-cards? The point is that such kind of unusual use of video-cards becomes very powerfull in recent years and people get factors tens-hundreds of performance increase using this approach (see http://www.nvidia.com/object/cuda_home.html#)
I would like to know first of all from the developers if G4 design allows such a splitting, and which parts of g4 could be used for parallel jobs and where it is better not to spend time on this kind of developments.
Some of my colleagues are involved in doing physics simulation using nvidia cards parallelism and they volunteer to work in this direction for g4 if this was not done already, and if g4 design is suitable for this. Thank you, Dmitry
