Hep: Computers for large scale simulation
 
Dear all,

The company I work for has decided to upgrade my computer and are currently looking into new machines from Dell. Does anyone have any recommendations?

Thanks a lot for your information.

sincerely, sarah

We have recently bought two new Dell PC's, here are the specs:

Precision 490:

Quad Intel Xeon 5160 (3GHz, 1333MHz FSB,4MB cache)

4x2GB Memory

NVIDIA Quadro FX 3450 - 256 MB

Win XP 64 bit

We have two of these. We chose it because we needed more ram and because of the high FSB. We spent around 3300 Euro for one.

It works very good in parallel on one machine and also on two seperate machines. The graphics are also good.

BR Kasper

Are you satisfied with the Quad core ? and how is the scaling ? Some time ago I heard that the scaling with the Quad core was not very good, but I would like to hear your experience. Regards Jan
