Bifrost dual bi cpu proc xeon


#1

Hi all,

simple question : does bifrost takes advantage of bi proc xeon setup for simulation ?

To some extent, but it will bottleneck depending on your simulation. In some or even many cases a simulation won’t saturate all cores even on one processor, so the second would be a waste. And there’s no GPU-acceleration either, as far as I know of.

However, CPU bottlenecks also exist in Realflow, and while it does have some GPU-acceleration, it doesn’t really help as much as you’d hope. In most cases it’s not even noticeable.
