Abstract: We present the new code FARGO3D. It is a finite difference code that solves the equations of hydrodynamics or magnetohydrodynamics on a Cartesian, cylindrical or spherical mesh. It features orbital advection, conserves mass and (angular) momentum to machine accuracy. Special emphasis is put on the description of planet disk tidal interactions. It is parallelized with MPI, and it can run indistinctly on CPUs or GPUs, without the need to program in a GPU oriented language.
