Dear all,

I have few queries regarding the acceleration of NAMD simulation using K40
and K80 tesla GPU cards --

i) How faster will be a NAMD job by upgrading from K40 to K80 when same
number of CPU cores are used? Is there any available benchmark ?

ii) What is the optimal CPU:GPU ratio to be used with K40 or K80 to get
maximum speed up. For example using K20, 4:1 CPU:GPU ratio is optimal
<>*). The same benchmark we have found with
C2075 also.

Any suggestion will help us to equip our workstation with proper number of

With regards,
