Subject: Re: [gmx-users] GPU low performance
I post the message of a md run :
Force evaluation time GPU/CPU: 40.974 ms/24.437 ms = 1.677
For optimal performance this ratio should be close to 1!
NOTE: The GPU has >20% more load than the CPU. This imbalance causes
performance loss, consider using a shorter cut-off and a finer PME grid.
As can I solved this problem ?
Thank you in advance
