Thank you for the info. The data that I obtained for comparison was  
performed  with GTX580, 4 fs timestep and heavy hydrogen atoms instead  
of constraints, as you suspected.  For dhfr with PME they were able to  
get 100 ns a day. I tested the same system on Tesla M2090 with 2fs  
timestep and constraints and was bale to get ~11 ns a day. Thus the  
factor of five that I reported.
