Special Promo for ANSYS Customers: up to 2.2x higher performance



EXALIT is pleased to offer a limited time (through June 27, 2015), limited volume special promotion for the Intel® Xeon Phi™ Coprocessor 3120A (6GB, 1.100 GHz, 57 core) and 7120A (16GB, 1.238 GHz, 61 core). ANSYS developers can cost-effectively purchase and upgrade systems to get greater levels of performance! 
ANSYS and Intel worked closely together to deliver up to 2.2x (1) higher performance, for ANSYS Mechanical* R16.0,  by optimizing the application code for the multi-core Intel® Xeon® processor E5-2600 v2 and v3 families and the many-core Intel® Xeon Phi™ coprocessor. The combination offers tremendous performance potential for structural mechanics simulations, at relatively low cost and without altering the end-user experience or complicating the IT environment.




3 reasons to convert your HPC infrastructure to Tesla K80s today

We run extensive testing of K80s using GROMACS MD App. We used 4 different GROMACS models to run the comparison. And we do want to share our findings with you.


GROMACS models we used for the tests:
1.96pope + 32popg in water
2.ADH Cubic (ftp://ftp.gromacs.org/pub/tmp/adh_cubic.tar.bz2)
4.B. subtilis model membrane


G10 HPC infrastructure we used for the test:
1)Next gen. G10 HPC based on NVIDIA Tesla K80
2)Current gen. G10 HPC based on NVIDIA Tesla K20

 3 reasons why you should consider upgrading to G10 HPC based on Tesla K80 starting from today:

1. New G10 is 2 times faster
You’ll need 2-times smaller K80-based system to get the same performance as with K20-based system.



2. With G10 you save ~36% on CAPEX
Even though new Tesla K80 GPUs are more expensive than Tesla K20s, the cumulative effect of building G10 HPC system on K80s result in ~36% fund savings comparing to the system of the same performance built on Tesla K20s. In other words the cost of research just became more than 1/3 cheaper!


3. With G10 you save ~43% on electricity and cooling
We compared the power consumption of both systems under load and the resulting data showed that Tesla K80 based G10 consumes almost half of the electricity than the Tesla K20 based system!


The next gen. G10 is not only twice as fast as the current gen. systems, but also is much more affordable. The cost of running new G10 is almost half of that of the current gen. New G10 consumes twice as less rack space and is a state of engineering art and technological progress. 

2.7x performance speed up for Media & Entertainment Applications

Last month NVIDIA introduced a New-Generation of NVIDIA QUADRO K420 | K620 | K2200 | K4200 | K5200 cards. One reason for the upgrade is that New-Generation QUADRO cards are up to 2.7x faster on modelling and rendering (while having the same price as the previous generation cards). It means that you spend only 55 minutes for a job, where previously you would spend 148.5 minutes (~2.5 hours). Here is NVIDIA slide summarising the performance benefits across the product line:

Another reason for the upgrade is that Maya and 3ds Max work up to 80% faster on New-Generation QUADROs comparing to Quadros of previous generation, and allow to load 2x times larger models into the graphic card memory freeing other Workstations resources and eliminating unnecessary swap files.
So by simply upgrading your graphic cards to NEW QUADROs (at about ~10% of workstation cost) - you may get an instant increase in Autodesk/Maya (and dozens of other M&E apps) performance using your current workstation! And the best news, we can give new QUADRO cards for your for a test-drive free-of-charge (as we are the first company in Singapore who started to install new QUADROs in our systems).

79% SolidWorks performance speed up with NEW NVIDIA QUADRO cards

NVIDIA recently announced a NEW QUADRO K420 | K620 | K2200 | K4200 | K5200 professional graphic cards line-up. This next generation QUADRO cards allow up to 2.7x faster CAD modelling and rendering.

It turns out that SolidWorks 2015 works up to 79% faster on NEW QUADROs than its previous generation, while allowing engineers to put 2x larger SolidWorks models into the graphic card memory. So by simply upgrading your graphic cards to NEW QUADRO - you may get an instant increase in SolidWorks performance even on your current workstation.
