    Totally not worth it. They're complete pants at Einstein with 2 concurrent taking a little over 13 minutes each which is less than half the performance of a R7. I gave 4 per a try but it just doubled the time taken. nvidia-smi says the V100 is at 100% utilisation but also that the card is...

    Thanks for all the fish ...

    I agree with your former point but not the latter. Providing help doesn't really resonate unless you're sacrificing something in doing so. Apologies if any of my actions have led to your decision. You'll be sorely missed CV.
