News ANSYS, Inc., a global innovator of simulation software and technologies designed to optimize product development processes, today announced a 3 ½ year official supplier contract with Emirates Team New Zealand, the sailing team leveraging ANSYS® computational fluid dynamics (CFD) technologies as a key component of its strategy to win back the America’s Cup in 2007.

“In the America’s Cup, computer simulation has taken a leading role in the design process. The CFD solution from ANSYS has taken the yacht designers several steps beyond what we were able to achieve in the past by allowing us to visualize flow velocity and pressure magnitudes, making it possible to improve the design at a much faster rate,” said Nick Holroyd, designer and CFD engineer for Team New Zealand.

Hardware From increasing the accuracy of global weather forecasts to helping to improve the safety of manned space flight, the majority of scientists and engineers depend on Intel-based super computers more than any other computing system, according to the latest TOP500 list.

Issued today, the 25th Edition of the TOP500 list of super computers shows that 333 of the world's top 500 systems on the list have Intel processors inside. Five years ago only four systems on the list were Intel-based. Since that time, the number of Intel-based systems has increased steadily, to achieve the distinction as the most prevalent super computer architecture on the TOP500.

In fact, according to the just-released ranking, three Intel-based platforms ranked first, second and third in terms of the most popular super computing platform: Intel(R) Xeon(TM) processors and Intel Xeon processors with 64-bit extensions power 254 systems, more than any other single processor, followed by Intel(R) Itanium(R) 2 processors, which power 79 systems.
