    Solidworks 2014 CPU Utilization

    Hayden Krause

      Dear Cloud Brain,

       

      I have SW Flow 2014 (recently upgraded from 13).  Mesh CPU utilization is far better!  I am wondering if anyone knows about any further utilization for solving.

       

      Currently running i7-3930K overclocked to 4.5Ghz.  My question put it simply is – can I do better than this by getting running duel Xeon processors?  Not factoring cost. 

      http://www.cpubenchmark.net/high_end_cpus.html - see here for CPU and performance. 

       

      I am also running: 64GHz HyperXBeast RAM, Win 7, W5000 GPU.  I got blue screens until I got a more powerful power supply.  Now she’s cooking with gas.  Any other tips on speeding up simulation from this setup…

       

      I have seen other threads detailing the jump from 2011 to 2012.

       

      I am sure that GPU processing is not supported yet.  Any rumours or details on this would be great also!

       

      Cheers!
