I have recently tried using a G3.16xlarge instance in Amazon AWS EC2 to process a job (4x Tesla M60 GPU's, 64vCPU and 488GB RAM) and it was no quicker that a 3x GPU card workstation taking approximately 20 hours. Interestingly in the cloud watch monitoring tool I could see it maxing the CPU usage. It's a shame there's no simply way of monitoring the GPU performance. I find it hard to believe that this isn't any quicker than a local workstation.
Has anyone else seen similar results, or perhaps some suggestions to optimise the GPU's?
