Grid Generation Pointwise announces the availability of their CFD meshing software, Gridgen Version 15.09, on Microsoft Windows and Linux workstations powered by the AMD Opteron processor.

"Gridgen has supported the Windows and Linux operating systems for eight and five years, respectively," said John Steinbrenner, Vice President of Research and Development. "During that time, the AMD Opteron processor has become very popular in the computational fluid dynamics market. With the help of our new partners at AMD we are now able to certify Gridgen’s performance on the Opteron processor both now and in the future."
