- Advanced reliability 2S performance
Finite Element Analysis (FEA) performance on MSC Nastran* workload
MD Nastran* combines best-in-class solver technologies - Nastran, Marc, Dytran, Adams, and LS-Dyna - into one, fully-integrated, multidiscipline simulation solution for the manufacturing enterprise allowing manufacturers to perform interoperable, multidisciplinary analyses on complex models. It allows product manufacturers to simulate real world problems more accurately in a fully integrated environment by using chained or coupled analyses with a common data model across multiple engineering disciplines. The model ran in-core is the Xl0tdf1_8 car body model with 529,027 DOF using direct frequency response (SOL108) solution sequence.

2S Intel® Xeon® processor X5680 based platform details
Intel® 5520 Chipset-based server platform system with two Intel® Xeon® processor X5680 (12M cache, 3.33 GHz, 6.40GT/s Intel® QPI), 24GB DDR3-1333MHz (6x4GB), Red Hat* Enterprise Linux 5.4 (2.6.18-164.el5), 4x 10K SATA RAID for scratch.
2S Intel® Xeon® processor X6550 based platform details
Intel® 7500 Chipset-based reference server platform (2S configuration has sockets 3 and 4 empty) with two Intel® Xeon® Processor X6550 (18M Cache, 2.00 GHz, 6.4GT/s Intel® QPI), 64GB memory (32x2GB DDR3-1333 (9,9,9) sys clock memory @1066MHz on 4 memory riser cards, 4xSAS HDD PCI SAS controller HW RAID. Results shown are for best binary for the platform: Intel® Xeon® processor X5680 runs used mode=I4 binaries (insufficient memory to keep all scratch data in-memory) Intel® Xeon® processor X6550 runs used mode=i8 + smem parameters to keep scratch data in-memory.
