ANSYS has plenty of big turbomachinery customers using CFX, so CFX will keep going for some time yet. It will not be discontinued in the foreseeable future. But it will not get much in the way of new features.

More development work is going into Fluent (as their high end option) and Discovery (as their entry level CFD package).

Regarding your cluster question - please start a new thread for a new question.

True.
Regarding the cluster question- will do- wasn't really going for any specific hardware advice, just thought it might be interesting in the overall cfx future context and people having to decide what type of hpc architecture they would have to go for now if having to decide, in simple terms, stick to cfx and buy mass cpu or maybe already switch to fluent and consider gpu instead. Was just wondering.

Which CFD package to use? That depends on what you are trying to do, what experience you have in the codes, the features and physics you need to model. All CFD codes have their strengths and weaknesses. And once you know what CFD code is best for your application then you can then think about what hardware to run it on.

I may not have expressed myself clearly enough, but I think my question has already been answered in the previous posts.
Essentially, I was interested in getting your gut feeling about the future of CFX. Since I've been working with it for more than 10 years, it would be nice to continue using it. But if something really happens in the next 5 years so that I need to change, I would rather change now and also consider the potential impact on hardware at the same time. Anyways, I guess it has already been answered.
