Hardware Recommendation for Flow Simulation

Question asked by Bernhard Hubl on Jan 11, 2011

Hello,

 

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

Win X64

 

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!

 

Bernhard
