Computational and Energy Efficiency of the CPUs and SoCs Based on ARM Architecture for Classical Molecular Dynamics Calculations
Applied Mathematics and Information Science
This paper is devoted to the topical problem of using hybrid systems for high-performance calculations. The theoretical part provides necessary information on the performance of modern processors, the method of molecular dynamics and on the software used. Then analysis of the main characteristics of Nvidia Jetson TK1 and TX1 platforms using Roofline performance model. It demonstrates the position these devices among the previously studied processors with regard to their effectiveness in solving molecular dynamics calculations in different configurations. Finally a detailed analysis of energy consumption and energy efficiency of systems is presented.
