The CD adapco Group is pleased to announce the release of STAR-CD version 3.15 for HP-UX 11i on HP's Intel Itanium-based line of technical computing platforms. These new STAR-CD binaries are a full recompile on HP-UX 11i using the native IA-64 instruction set, achieving performance advantage from the native Itanium instruction set.

"Because of the broad support by the hardware vendors for the Intel Itanium processor, this is a very important step for the CD adapco Group and our customers. IA-64 technology is strategic to the future of our products. With the performance growth path IA-64 promises over current RISC and IA32 technologies, our customers have the potential to run far more complex simulations than ever imagined. The volumes at which Itanium chips will be produced also promise to drive down hardware costs for our worldwide customers allowing them to acquire more performance to tackle larger analysis jobs. HP is a leader in developing IA-64 technology and is one of the first to bring this technology to market. HP-UX 11i has proven itself to be a very high-quality, stable, UNIX platform which promises to be a cost-effective hardware system for both the development of STAR-CD code and for our customers' production simulation jobs. We believe that the combination of HP-UX 11i and Intel Itanium technology running these new STAR-CD binaries will give our customers a simulation environment they can depend on." Steve MacDonald, Chief Executive, CD adapco Group

In the future, the CD adapco Group plans on releasing IA-64 HP-UX 11 native binary support for all its STAR-suite applications, including pro*am and "EZTools" - a set of application-specific CAE software products.
