GROMACS GPU performance¶
In this workshop, we will examine how GROMACS uses GPUs and how you as a user can get the best value from that.
Experience running production simulations with GROMACS. General concepts will be introduced with brief descriptions that should be familiar to experienced MD users. Links to the GROMACS documentation will be used frequently.
Who is the course for?¶
This material is targeted towards researchers who already have experience with GROMACS and who would like to learn how to improve simulation performance when running on GPUs.
About the course¶
This lesson material is developed by the EuroCC National Competence Center Sweden (ENCCS) and taught in ENCCS workshops. It is aimed at researchers and developers who already have production experience with GROMACS. Each lesson episode has clearly defined learning objectives and includes multiple exercises along with solutions, and is therefore also useful for self-learning.
