  • ANSYS Benchmark Test Case Information.
  • ANSYS HPC Licensing Packs required for this benchmark
    • I used (2) HPC Packs to unlock all 32 cores.
  • Please contact your local ANSYS Software Sales Representative for more information on purchasing ANSYS HPC Packs. You too may be able to speed up your solve times by unlocking additional compute power!
  • What is a CUBE? For more information regarding our Numerical Simulation workstations and clusters please contact our CUBE Hardware Sales Representative at SALES@PADTINC.COM Designed, tested and configured within your budget. We are happy to help and to  listen to your specific needs.

Pro Tip –> Lastly, please check out this article by Greg Corke one of my friends at ANSYS, Inc. I am using the ANSYS benchmark data fromthe Lenovo Thinkstation P910 as a baseline for my benchmark data.  Enjoy Greg’s article here!

  • The CPU Information

The benchmark data is derived off of the running through the BGA (sp-5) ANSYS test case. CPU’s and how they perform with one of the very latest ANSYS releases, ANSYS Release 17.1.

  1.  Intel® Xeon® e5-2680 V4
  2.  Intel® Xeon® e5-2667 V4
  3.  Intel® Xeon® e5-2697a V4
  • It Is All About The Data
    • Only one workstation was used for the data in this ANSYS Test Case
    • No GPU Accelerator cards are used for the data
    • Solution solve times are in seconds

As you will may have noticed above, the CUBE workstation with the Intel Xeon e5-2697A V4 had the fastest solution solve time for one workstation.

  • *** Using 31 cores the CUBE w32i finished the sp-5 test case in 145.2 seconds.
