Engineer Productivity Boosted by Higher-Core CPUs - White Paper

In an effort to save costs, some engineers run ANSYS Mechanical on systems with a small number of cores or select an ANSYS licensing option that restricts ANSYS processing to only two cores. At the same time, the CPU core counts of Intel® Xeon® processors continue to increase in new releases, and the multicore efficiency of ANSYS Mechanical has also continued to advance. These developments now amount to dramatic performance improvements in ANSYS Mechanical, making systems with higher core counts—and a licensing option that takes advantage of those cores—an especially compelling choice that can result in enormous savings in the long run.
