Technical specifications for the V100 and GTX gpu cards

I am confused to choose a GPU card related configuration compatible with
the NAMD application.

Some server models (e.g. DELL) specifically require at least two CPUs for
V100 GP-GPUs to be functional. I wish to know whether such a technical
limitation is also valid if the GTX1080 card is used instead of V100? I
mean is it a general specification or specific to the build of a card.

One more thing: if a workstation is planned with one Intel Xeon Gold 5218
and one GTX1080 or RTX2080, will it be fine to run NAMD?

Thank you.
