Benchmarks performed with NWChem

This page contains a suite of benchmarks performed with NWChem. The benchmarks include a variety of computational chemistry methods on a variety of high performance computing platforms. The list of benchmarks available will evolve continuously as new data becomes available. If you have benchmark information you would like to add for your computing system, please contact one of the developers.

Hybrid density functional calculation on the C240 Buckyball

Performance of the Gaussian basis set DFT module in NWChem. This calculation involved performing a PBE0 calculation (in direct mode) on the on C240 system with the 6-31G* basis set (3600 basis functions). These calculations were performed on the Chinook supercomputer located at PNNL. Timings are per step for the various components. The input file is available.

Parallel performance of Ab initio Molecular Dynamics using plane waves

AIMD Parallel timings for UO_2^{2+}+122H2O. These calculations were performed on the Franklin Cray-XT4 computer system at NERSC.
Exact exchange timings – 80 atom cell of hematite (cutoff energy=100Ry). These calculations were performed on the Franklin Cray-XT4 computer system at NERSC.
AIMD and AIMD/MM Parallel Timings for Zn2 + +64H2O (unit cell parameters SC=12.4 Angs. and cutoff energy =100Ry). These calculations were performed on the Chinook HP computer system at MSCF EMSL, PNNL.

Parallel performance of the CR-EOMCCSD(T) method (triples part)

An example of the scalability of the triples part of the CR-EOMCCSD(T) approach for Green Fluorescent Protein Chromophore (GFPC) described by cc-pVTZ basis set (648 basis functions) as obtained from NWChem. Timings were determined from calculations on the Franklin Cray-XT4 computer system at NERSC. See the input file for details.

Current developments for high accuracy: GPGPU and alternative task schedulers

Currently various development efforts are underway for high accuracy methods that will be available in future releases of NWChem. The examples below shows the first results of the performance of the triples part of Reg-CCSD(T) on GPGPUs (left two examples) and of using alternative task schedules for the iterative CCSD and EOMCCSD.
