Re: [AMBER] Which gpu should I select between tesla k80 and RTX30 series

K80 is a very old card by now, and it is possible that Amber will drop
support for it at some point in the not so distant future.

I am not sure one can do head to head comparison, but my back of the
envelope calculation is that an RTX30X is around 5 or 6x faster (in
ns/day) than an K80.
