Monte Carlo eXtreme

Fast photon migration simulations powered by GPU-based parallel computing

    * Monte Carlo eXtreme, or MCX, is a Monte Carlo simulation software for photon migration in 3D turbid media. It uses Graphics Processing Units (GPU) based massively parallel computing techniques and is extremely fast compared to traditional CPU-based simulations. Using an nVidia 8800GT graphics card (14MP/114Cores), the acceleration is about 300x~400x with over 1700 parallel threads; this ratio can be as high as 700x on a high-end GTX 295 GPU (multiply by another 2x if both GPUs on GTX295 are used).
