Baseline Results for Example Model

- Comparison to Infernal software
- Infernal run on Intel Xeon 2.8GHz
- Baseline architecture run on Xilinx Virtex-II 4000
- occupied 88% of logic resources
- run at 100 MHz
- Input database of 100 Million residues
- Bulk of time spent on I/O (41.434s)

Expected Speedup on Larger Models

- Speedup estimated ...
- using 100 MHz clock
- for processing database of 100 Million residues
- Speedups range from 500x to over 13,000x
- larger models with more parallelism exhibit greater speedups

Next Class

- Models of Computation (Design Patterns)

Questions/Comments/Concerns

- Write down
- Main point of lecture
- One thing that’s still not quite clear
- If everything is clear, then give an example of how to apply something from lecture
