Ollama benchmark Q2 2024 - Exoscale A40 - Consumption

Go back to list

As power consumption is one of the main aspect of performance, we obtained several measurements of usage through the gpu-burn software:

  • GFLOPS: As therorical raw performance value
  • Temperature: Average hotness during the operation
  • Watt: Average energy delivery

Notes

  • Please keep in mind that GFLOPS doesn't directly reflect what LLM can directly provides
  • Power consumption is not in the original sofware. Cloud Mercato did a pull request to include this value in results. Feel free to help us to push this contribution
  • An NVIDIA A40 has idle temperature of 33 C° and 14 Watts
  • No errors were produced by GPU computations during our tests
