Hi all!, I'd like to ask you something.

Let's say that I have a problem in CFX which involves about 20 mill elements so I'd need about 24GB of memory to be able to solve it. The question is, if I have two processors in the same motherboard, will i need 24GB for each processor to use both of them or the 24GB are for the whole machine?

thank you all for your attention.

You don't need to have 24 GB for each processors. 24GB for the system as such will do .
