CPU vs GPU: AMBER Code Simulation

submitted by: btolo

The terminal view on the left shows a 'tail' of the AMBER code output for a simulation of Myoglobin, a protein found in muscle fibers. In this video, the output is being run on a single Intel E5462 2.80 GHz CPU. The terminal view on the right shows the same AMBER code output, but run on a single NVIDIA C1060 GPU. The GPU run is about 40 times faster than the CPU run.

This simulation shows a protein folding simulation of TRPCage (an artificially designed protein) running in implicit solvent. The simulation shows a single Intel E5462 2.80GHz CPU versus an NVIDIA C1060 GPU.
