Initially TURBOMOLE has been specially designed for UNIX workstations as well as PCs and efficiently exploits the capabilities of this type of hardware. Meanwhile, TURBOMOLE runs on almost all kinds of hardware and systems, from standard Windows or MacOS Notebooks up to massively parallel supercomputers. Most users run TURBOMOLE on Linux PCs, either local multi-core systems or clusters.
TURBOMOLE consists of a series of modules; their use is facilitated by various tools and a graphical user interface TmoleX. Almost all time consuming parts of TURBOMOLE are parallelized for SMP/multi-core systems and/or for clusters using standard MPI.
