GROMACS

The CUDA version of the Gromacs molecular dynamics package.

The pts/gromacs-gpu test profile has been replaced by pts/gromacs that now has the GPU/CUDA support exposed as a run-time option rather than being maintained as a separate test profile.

To run this test with the Phoronix Test Suite, the basic command is: phoronix-test-suite benchmark gromacs-gpu.

Use with caution this test profile is currently marked Deprecated.

Revision History

pts/gromacs-gpu-1.1.1   [View Source]   Thu, 13 May 2021 18:31:42 GMT
Deprecate test profile now that pts/gromacs exposes CUDA/GPU option rather than keeping separate test profile of it.

pts/gromacs-gpu-1.1.0   [View Source]   Sun, 06 Sep 2020 12:02:53 GMT
Update against 2020.03 upstream, add workaround for building with CUDA 11 due to compute_30 being dropped.

pts/gromacs-gpu-1.0.0   [View Source]   Sat, 22 Dec 2018 11:29:34 GMT
Add NVIDIA CUDA enabled version of Gromacs molecular biology benchmark.

Performance Metrics

Analyze Test Configuration:

GROMACS 2020.3

Water Benchmark

OpenBenchmarking.org metrics for this test profile configuration based on 212 public results since 6 September 2020 with the latest data as of 5 March 2022.

Below is an overview of the generalized performance for components where there is sufficient statistically significant data based upon user-uploaded results. It is important to keep in mind particularly in the Linux/open-source space there can be vastly different OS configurations, with this overview intended to offer just general guidance as to the performance expectations.

Based on OpenBenchmarking.org data, the selected test / test configuration (GROMACS 2020.3 - Water Benchmark) has an average run-time of 9 minutes. By default this test profile is set to run at least 3 times but may increase if the standard deviation exceeds pre-defined defaults or other calculations deem additional runs necessary for greater statistical accuracy of the result.
