    Flow Simulation Speed with i7-5960x (flow 2014 or 2015)

    Hayden Krause

      Hay,

       

      I was wondering if anyone has had any experience with running flow simulations with the new 8 core i7.  I am looking for a speedup and am currently running...

       

      Win 7

      i7-3930K @ 4.4 GHz (6 core)

      64GB DDR3 HyperXBeast

      Firepro W5000

       

      I am aware that more cores will give me a speed-up with diminishing returns, however I was wondering if anyone would be able to expand on that to give a better idea of what jump I might expect.  There is a good link below about CFD.  Anyone found any more links?
