Fluent and quad core processor
 
Hi guys,

I have a pc with a quad core processor!
When i run a fluent simulation, fluent uses the power of the four cores by default?

Thanks

To run on multiple processors you will require additional licenses. These licenses are much cheaper than a full Fluent license. They are called ANSYS HPC (High Performance Computing) licenses. There is also something called an HPC pack that allows you to run simulations on up to 8 processors (for dual quad-core machines).

Thanks NickFL for your answer!! :)
Yes i have the license!
There is a previous thread that explains how to run in multi core cpu!!

I think for an upgrade of my cpu and buy a 6core!! Will i have a problem run in parallel?
