Performance Performance

OpenFOAM® on POWER8 is a true high performance computing solution to solve and analyse problems that involve fluid flows. A recent benchmark study showed 3x better performance of POWER8 over x86.

OpenFOAM® 2.3.0 was compiled on x86 and POWER8 and two benchmarks were run, one using a motorbike example and one using a car example and the results showed a number of benefits.

Benefits of OpenFOAM® on Power:

Achieve up to 3x better performance

Huge productivity gains

GPU acceleration possible with POWER8

OpenFOAM® scales well on POWER8
