I am looking for a high performance CPU for doing modeling by CFD FLUENT. Unfortunately I do not know how to choose a suitable CPU in order to let my project being done smoothly. Can anyone please tell me the specification or requirement of the best CPU in order to do my project well.

Thanks.

The price difference between Xeon and i7 is there for a reason off course.
Xeon are dedicated CPU's for heavy workload.

But if you don't have the money, i7 is for sure a good alternative.
Just make sure that you don't ruin your CPU speed with slow memory or slow hard drives. I/O is 30 percent of your speed

If you are really interested in HPC, you can choose work in a supercomputacional center.......... it's about 0,15-0,25€/Hr*CPU
