Table 2 Server cost and price to performance ratio

From: Accelerating epistasis analysis in human genetics with consumer graphics hardware

Solution Cost Average time Price to performance
8-core CPU 13750 11742.000 1.0000
4-core CPU 5000 17366.000 1.8594
4 core cluster 2200 2389.700 30.710
16 core cluster 8800 666.200 27.540
32 core cluster 17600 332.180 27.616
80 core cluster 44000 129.530 28.328
150 core cluster 82500 69.137 28.306
1 GPU 970.94 193.260 860.42
2 GPU 1320.93 102.250 1195.4
3 GPU 1670.92 72.633 1330.3
  1. This is a comparison between the different solutions, taking into account their cost and scaled for the price to performance ratio of the 8-core server running Java. The cluster costs derive from a base cost of $4400 for an eight core node.
