Tesla Utilization -- NAMD 2.7b1

Hi All,

I have a researcher interested in buying a dual quad core system with a
single C1060 Tesla card and would like to get some input from current
Tesla/NAMD users.

Does anyone have any experience and/or performance data using NAMD 2.7
on a single dual quad core system with a single Tesla card?

What I specifically want to know, is whether I can use all eight cores
with the GPU or would I need to scale back the number of cores to get
maximum throughput or possible add a second Tesla card. Is there any
rule of thumb for cores per GPU?

Thanks,
Ron
