News In a recent Flow Science blog post, Flow Science's IT Manager Matthew Taylor breaks down the different hardware components and suggests some ideal configurations for getting the most out of FLOW-3D products.

The guide includes some well thought out considerations of CPU, memory, storage, and graphics hardware options.

FLOW-3D is a computationally-intensive program to run, because CFD solver performance is entirely dependent on the floating-point performance of the CPU. FlowSight is also highly CPU-dependent. While we canít benchmark every available CPU, we can reasonably compare relative performance.

The best option for estimating FLOW-3D performance for a given CPU, or for comparing the performance between multiple CPU options, is Standard Performance Evaluation Corporationís SPEC CPU2017 benchmark, specifically their SPECspeed 2017 Floating Point results, which predict CFD solver performance extremely well.
