SGI and ANSYS Achieve New CFD World Record In Hpc

HPC CFD record

ANSYS Blog, September 2016

ANSYS and SGI achieved a new world record for scaling ANSYS Fluent on an SGI® ICE™ XA, one of the world’s fastest commercial distributed-memory supercomputer platforms. This joint project breaks last year’s 129,024 core record by more than 16,000 cores.

"The new world record benchmark reduces the total solver wall clock time to run a single simulation from 20 minutes for 1,296 cores to a mere 13 seconds using 145,152 cores."
