In the long term the Tesla is much more preferable as the GTX would not support certain high end functions. Pls verify these before you purchase one. Also the Tesla C-2070 is the newer one available and with 6.0GB RAM it really gives out great performance. The price is the same.

Subject: [gmx-users] Gromacs on GPU: GTX or Tesla?


We want to start using Gromacs on GPU and we are debating whether to purchase GeForce GTX card or Tesla platform. Looking at the published data it seems GTX580 has much impressive performance compared to Tesla C2050, and of course it is much cheaper. Is there a reason to prefer Tesla over GTX for running Gromacs in the short or long term?

Thanks, Efrat
