    FloTherm XT - New PC assembly - fastest simulations

    carlos-m-monica

      Hi everyone,

       

      We recently purchase Flotherm XT to start simulations of our boards. Very complex boards, with complex enclosures, heat sinks etc.

       

      When we first tried a Flotherm demo, it took us 3 days for it to solve one of our boards on a 16core CPU overclocked (dont remember the Ghz)  and 64gb of Ram.

       

      We are now searching for a better PC, but i would like to now if things will be faster with a Tesla or Quadro GPU or Intel Xeon Phi...as i recall from older versions,we could only use CPU threads not GPU.

       

      Please make suggestion of a good PC (motherboard, CPU, GPU, RAM etc) for fastest simulation in complex environments?

       

      Thanks for your help.

      Carlos
