Why simulation running on linux is damn slow??

Hello NAMD users,
I have a system of ~250000 atoms and I want to run simulation for 100 ns.
The time step is 2, so I put run = 50000000 in config file. It took 4 days
and hardly completed 6400000 steps, this means it'll take >20 days to
complete 100 ns simulation with this speed. The command I used is:
namd2 +idle poll +p10 +devices 0 config.
namd > xxx.log
Details of my system:
Linux, Ubuntu
CPU(s) 40, online cups list 0-39, Core(s) per socket 10, Sockets 2,
 NVIDIA GM206 [GeForce GTX 960] (rev a1).
but when I put the command nvidia-smi,
it prints 'not found', but can be installed with: sudo aor install
and many others.
Please let me know what should I do to speed up the simulation?
kind regards
