[gmx-users] GROMACS vs. AMBER speed comparison?

Hi, gmx-users,

Recently I have try to use AMBER 9 for the simulation of protein with about
300 residues.
Surprisingly, I found that AMBER is far slower than GROMACS; GROMACS is
about twice faster.
I can not figure out the reason.
Why is GROMACS faster than AMBER?
Could anybody know the reason?

Or have I made a mistake in AMBER or GROMACS simulation?

If anybody has compared the speed of AMBER and GROMACS, please tell me the

Thank you~
