  16. 16. Molecular Modeling: Ion Placement Biomolecular simulations attempt to replicate in vivo conditions in silico. Model structures are initially constructed in vacuum Solvent (water) and ions are added as necessary for the required biological conditions Computational requirements scale with the size of the simulated structure © NVIDIA Corporation 2007
  17. 17. Evolution of Ion Placement Code First implementation was sequential Virus structure with 10^6 atoms would require 10 CPU days Tuned for Intel C/C++ vectorization+SSE, ~20x speedup Parallelized /w pthreads: high data parallelism = linear speedup Parallelized GPU accelerated implementation: 3 GeForce 8800GTX cards outrun ~300 Itanium2 CPUs! Virus structure now runs in 25 seconds on 3 GPUs! Further speedups should still be possible… © NVIDIA Corporation 2007
