    Wish list spec for a SW simulation desktop?

    Bert Bourgeois

      coudlnt quite find a current thread on this, so here we go...


      We have currently a HP Z600 dual processor we can remotely log into to run 'complex' ( few hours, and +) simulations in SW.


      The he machine is getting old and I'm sure there is much more power available these days for a few thousands $.


      if today you have to built a machine dedicated to SW simulation, what would you pick? Factorise cores? RAM? SSD and bus speed?? Is multi processors still relevant, or is a single recent CPU well enough?


      what would your dream machine be like?


      (trying to built a case for IT to get us something newer here...)
