## Hardware Stack
4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11
Currently planned node-configuration:
- 2x Intel Xeon 6230 CPU
- 192 GB RAM
- 8 GPUs

We are currently looking into two possible GPU configurations:
- 80% SP / 20% DP GPUs (72x RTX 2080Ti / 16x V100)
- 60% SP / 40% DP GPUs (48x RTX 2080Ti / 24x V100)

## Software Stack

Currently planned:
- Scientific Linux 7 (to ensure compatibility with the existing CPU-Cluster)
- In the long future we are looking to migrate to CentOS since the support for SL7 got discontinued.

Difference between SingePrecision and DoublePrecision:  
[simple explanation](https://www.thecrazyprogrammer.com/2018/04/single-precision-vs-double-precision.html)  
Desktop GPUs like the RTX2080 are SingePrecision cards, where professional ones like the V100 are DoublePrecision ones.

2.4 | Deep learning for fast magnitude estimation of earthquakes | Single precision GPU with > 10 GB GPU memory, at least 200 GB main memory, 8 CPU cores | up to date nvidia driver, the rest works fine with conda (cuda, tensorflow, pytorch) | I fear that 2 CPUs for 8 GPUs might be to less. The machine I'm currently running on has two Xeon Gold 5122 and four RTX 2080 Ti and is CPU bound.
