GPU-Accelerated and CPU SIMD Optimized Monte Carlo Simulation of boldsymbolphi4 Model

keywords: GPU computing, vectorization, SIMD, Monte-Carlo simulations
In this contribution we describe an efficient GPU implementation of the Monte-Carlo simulation of the Ginzburg-Landau model. We achieve the performance close to 50 % of the peak performance of the used GPU. We compare this performance with a parallelized and vectorized CPU code and discuss the observed differences.
