Hello - I am posting up some sample data for you to check out. I was curious to see how our new 10 core CUBE INTEL XEON Haswell e5-26887W V3 workstation performed. Basically I was curious to see how various SSD's vs. SAS2 15k rpm drives times would affect the ANSYS standard V15-sp5 benchmark times.

The data below will show you some interesting information regarding SSD vs. SAS2 15k RPM performance. In particular notice the solve times of the SAS2 15k RPM drives with the more cores you use.

Enjoy!

All the best,
David

    David,

    That looks interesting, but the formatting got munged when you posted. Any chance you could clean it up, or give a few sentences of summary?
