Solution Performance

Abaqus Explicit* is a finite element analysis product that is well-suited to simulate brief transient dynamic events such as automotive crashworthiness, and ballistic impact.

“Computational Engineering and Biology are two of the most compute-intensive domains bottlenecking business today. The performance improvements we’ve seen with the Intel® Xeon® Gold 6148 processor can directly translate into better products and reduced time to market for our customers. In the future performance improvements will be measured in number of lives saved.”
– Steve Levine, executive director, The Living Heart Project

Software and workloads used in performance tests may have been optimized for performance only on Intel® microprocessors. Performance tests, such as SYSmark* and MobileMark*, are measured using specific computer systems, components, software, operations and functions. Any change to any of those factors may cause the results to vary. You should consult other information and performance tests to assist you in fully evaluating your contemplated purchases, including the performance of that product when combined with other products.
