This week QLogic announced record performance on the ANSYS FLUENT 12.1 benchmark. Using IBM iDataPlex servers running QLogic 7300 Series InfiniBand host adapters and Intel 5670 processors, the benchmark demonstrates that QLogic TrueScale InfiniBand fabrics outperform other platforms on ANSYS FLUENT applications.
Processor speed and network performance are critical for top performance of ANSYS CFD applications, and QLogic’s leadership in documenting results on the latest IB gear helps our customers select the best hardware configurations for these applications,” said Dipankar Choudhury, vice president of product strategy, ANSYS. “We are glad to see hardware manufacturers like IBM, Intel, and QLogic pushing the performance envelope to add value to our solutions.”
