Acceleware retires support for the FDTD acceleration library based on the Operating System (OS) and the Graphis Processor Unit (GPU). This is done to focus development resources to harness the latest technologies to further speedup your simulations. Acceleware does not limit your ability to use your GPU for acceleration if you have a valid license. However, newer features may not be supported in your existing GPUs or may run with untested outcomes. The upgrade path to newer software releases from Accelware and our partners may be disabled for older platforms.
