Recommended Computer Specs for Wind Turbine Parallel Processing

  • Processor: Fastest 64bit available (Intel i7 or better)
  • Number of Processors: Minimum 12 (without hyper threading preferred)
  • RAM: Minimum 12GB
  • BUS: Fastest Available
  • Storage: Solid State Drive 1.5TB-2.0TBUsing the Optimal Number of Processors.

It’s important to determine the optimal number of processors required for fastest processing by benchmarking the system by running multiple analyses using different number of processors to determine the number which gives the optimal speed.

Note: I/O to the disk/drive can be a bottle neck (hence the fastest bus and I/O requirements).
