The test matrices are all from the UF sparse matrix collection, which need long time in numerical factorization.
Table 1 lists the time of numerical factorization between GSS and PARDISO. PARDISO’ s version is from Intel Composer XE 2013 SP1. GSS 2.4 use CPUGPU hybrid computing. The testing CPU is INTEL Core i74770(3.4GHz) with 24G memory. The graphics card is ASUS GTX780 (with compute capability 3.5). NVIDIA CUDA Toolkit is 5.5. The operating system is Windows 7 64. Both solvers use default parameters.
For large matrices need long time computing, GSS 2.4 is Nearly 3 times faster than PARDISO. For matrices need short time computing, PARDISO is faster than GSS. One reason is that complex synchronization between CPU/GPU do need some extra time.
