We want to buy a new workstation, which should be mainly used for
SolidWorks Flow Simulation.
At the moment I use a 4 year old HP Workstation
with the following specifications:
2xIntel Xeon 5160/3GHz/1333 MHz/4MB
RAM: 32 GB DDR2-667 SDRAM
We are mainly interested in increasing the speed of solving Flow Simulation problems.
Is it possible to reduce the calculation time by a factor of 2 or 3 with new hardware?
Which hardware and OS do you recommend, if I want to invest 5000 EUR?
Can I reduce the calculation time significantly, if I invest much more than 5000 EUR?
Any help or suggestions are very appreciated.
Thanks in advance!
