CFX.. win 32 (xp prof) vs. linux (suse10.2)
Hello. Does anybody knows in what operating system, does ansys CFX (and other products: TurboGrid, Workbench...) works faster??

faster means = time solving a CFD problem.

For example, if you run the SAME problem in linux and in windows.... in wich OS (operating system) runs faster ??

Thanks. Santiago.

I am a XP man through and through, but I believe that the solver actually runs faster on linux based systems. There are a few threads on this subject in this forum and the official forum.

Based on my experience I would say that there is hardly any difference. Most important is the speed of your processor. A small difference I noticed is that in linux the file handling is faster. E.g. Results files are created faster.

I agree with Gert-Jan, recent versions of CFX run about the same speed on WinXP and linux, both serial and parallel. I have not seen benchmarks of CFX11 yet but certainly for CFX10 there was no difference.
