Solution Performance

Virtual Performance Software* (VPS) originated from a crash simulation software, PAM-CRASH*, and is used by manufacturers in order to virtually validate their new designs. The software is based on finite element methods (FEM) and enables the modeling of complex geometry by offering different structural and continuum elements: beams, shells, membranes, and solids.

Benchmark results were obtained prior to implementation of recent software patches and firmware updates intended to address exploits referred to as "Spectre" and "Meltdown". Implementation of these updates may make these results inapplicable to your device or system. 

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.
