WU 16904 VERY low PPD

Postby cine.chris » Thu Jun 25, 2020 6:37 pm

PPD in the 700k range on a 2060s. Utilization ~75%, high interface utilization, low FB usage when compared to identical 2nd GPU. 2nd GPU is running at 1,627K PPD.

Proteins being analyized may be large or small. They are assigned (mostly) randomly to GPUs which also come in various configurations. A large protein necessarily has many calculations which can be done in parallel by GPUs that have a large number of shaders. On the other hand small proteins have very few calcluations whicn can be done in parallel and all the serisal protions still have to be performed. Your 2060 is great at processing large proteins and not so good working on small proteins.

Project 16904 has only 32,000 atoms.

There's an open ticket for an enhancement to optimize the assignments.

Interesting.
Is there any advantage to the project for donors to be running a mix of hardware... GPU/CPU, # of cores? Smaller GPUs?

The smallest proteins work best on a CPU slot. Intermediate sized proteins work well on low to intermediate GPUs. Large prtiens work well on the latest (and widest) GPUs.

Unfortunately, you don't get to choose.

Same issue here with 16907@2080Ti.
This low-atom-projects should not be assigned to hight end gpus.
As I'm informed there are some possibilities to assure this, no?
