Hello-

Just a quick note to thanks Siemens Support Enigineering, specifically Joe Brackin. We have been running FEMAP with NX Nastran on an older Dell T3500:

 

Dell Precision T3500

320GB SATA HD

512MB PCI NVIDIA  Quadro FX580 video

Dual Core W3505 2.53GHz Processor

8GB DDR3 ECC SDRAM, 1333MHz

Win7 64 bit

 

Based on Joe's reccomendations, we upgraded to an new machine:

 

Dell Precision T5810

512GB SS HD for boot

1TB PCIe M.2 NVMe Solid State Drive (Scratch space)

1TB SATA 7.2k RPM HDD (Mass Storage)

Xeon Processor E5-1620 v3 (Four Core HT, 10MB Cache, 3.5GHz Turbo)

NVIDIA Quadro M4000 8GB

Win7 64 bit

 

 

The performance gains are astounding. Our first simulation ran in less than 5 minutes. Previously it would have taken 8+ HOURS.  I know we are comparing two entirely different machines, but the reccomendations for our application was spot-on. We now have a very happy (and productive) stress engineer.

 

Thanks!
