Merge projects

Post by DarkIced »

Hello, I wanted to ask if there is a way to join all my video cards to the same project so I can solve them faster, I currently have 10 video cards and each one is working on a different project, is there a way to join all of them to a single project ?


Thank you!

In theory this could be done, but in practice the communication speed between cards is just too slow. Calculations on the position and speed vectors for each atom in the system need to be done in relation to all of the atoms around them. This requires transfer of a lot of data, that happens much faster within a single GPU than could happen between two or more.
