Sun has released its latest set of performance results from the new Blade X6275/6048. The system in question is equipped with 2.93Ghz Intel quad core Nehalem silicon [5570's] and QDR Infiniband. The benchmarks in question were the RADIOSS Neon_1M and Taurus_Frontal at 32, 64 and 128 cores. RADIOSS is a finite element solver for linear and non-linear simulations used for structures, fluids, fluid-structure interaction, sheet metal stamping and mechanical systems. The results were compared against an SGI ICE 8200 system using IP95 2.93Ghz nodes and DDR Infiniband.
Altair has provided a suite of benchmarks to demonstrate the performance of RADIOSS. The initial set of benchmarks provides four automotive crash models. Future updates will add in marine and aerospace applications, as well as including automotive NVH applications. The benchmarks use real data, requiring double precision computations and the parith feature (Parallel arithmetic algorithm) to obtain exactly the same results whatever the number of processors used.
