Hardware The SGI Altix 3000 server, running 64-bit Linux on Intel Itanium 2 processors, has scored very well on a number of industry standard performance benchmarks (pdf of scores).

In an extensive array of industry-standard benchmarks such as SPEC®, STREAM Triad and Linpack, as well as on real-world scientific and engineering applications, the SGI Altix 3000 family bested similarly configured systems from IBM, HP and Sun--in some cases delivering more than two times the performance over the nearest competitor.

Real-world tests running applications from major technical compute markets included those in computational chemistry, biosciences, environmental modeling, and computational fluid dynamics.

Of particular interest to CFD Review readers will be the STAR-CD application benchmark.

Application VTT Processes, one of six research units of VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland, applies the latest research techniques to the sort of challenges and problems that face the energy and process industries, such as decreasing emissions and controlling climate changes, introducing production processes that require even less resources and using an increasing amount of renewable and recycled raw materials.

Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) is a crucial tool for the Center, which works closely with the diesel engine industry and requires increasingly accurate ways to measure fluid flow to improve performance and reduce emissions. There are twenty CFD engineers working at VTT Processes on various applications, many of whom use the powerful CFD solver, STAR-CD from the CD adapco Group.
