Good morning , i have a big problem with my workstation . This mounth i have buy a new pc with 2 xeon e5 2658 v3 with 24 vores and 48 cores with hyper. But when i try to lunch a simulation with a simulation with statical structural solver , i see the cpu usage at only 4 % with 2 cpus that work...I try to find a solution , i read many post with hpc problem , but with no results. I see that my ansys have one hpc lincense , could anyone tell me a procedure for use all the cores in workbench static structural?

Ok, i found the solution , when i open the mechanical tub , under tools , there is solver option and i can set the cores'number and the gpu model. Now i have another problem , with my cpu ( 2xe5 2658 ) i have 24 phisic's cores and 24 logic cores...But if i set 48 cores , the usage goes only at 50%....Is there anyone that could help me?

Hei, you have only 24 physical cores. Hyperthreading will not increase the speed of your calculations, more likely to slow them actually down.

Ah ok , i dont know it, another think, i read that the gpu could give a support. Now i have a gtx 970, could it function?

Gweher will become famous soon enough
Not all the GPU are supported. For the Nvidia cards you should have either the Quadro or the Tesla series. You can find a description of the tested and recommended graphic cards bellow:

Not to get into too much details, but the Quadro / Tesla have a lot more memory and have double precision plus are more “thoroughly” tested.

You can still use a GTX for post processing, but not for calculation.
