CAE Workstations

Purpose Built by Orbital Computers

Incredible Performance

Orbital Computers’ CAE Workstations are designed from the ground up to power through intensive FEA, CFD, and general HPC simulations by using carefully curated Intel Xeon processors, error correcting DDR4 RAM, and CUDA-enabled GPU accelerators to provide supercomputer level performance in a desktop form factor. Orbital Computers’ FEA workstations provide the perfect mix of single-threaded CPU performance for CAD tasks, multi-threaded CPU performance for CFD, FEA, and general simulation tasks, and support for GPU acceleration with the latest Nvidia Tesla co-processors. Experience major improvements in your CAE workflow with an Orbital Computers FEA workstation – contact us today for a personalized CAE workstation recommendation or view our simulation workstations here.

Key Features:

GPU Accelerated Simulation

Many simulations within ANSYS Fluent, Mechanical, and Nexxim can be offloaded from the CPU to the GPU to be solved in a highly parallel manner, providing significantly decreased simulation time. Decreased simulation time means more iterations leading to further refined products with a quicker time to market – all with lower IT costs when compared to traditional CPU simulation. Orbital Computers’ CAE workstations support up to 3 GPUs in a desktop form factor for ultimate GPU accelerated simulation. Further improving ROI on Orbital Computers’ GPU accelerated workstations, ANSYS’ HPC licensing scheme treats each GPU socket as a CPU core, providing major savings on software licensing. Gain a competitive edge with a GPU accelerated Orbital Computers ANSYS workstation – contact us today for a custom-tailored solution.

Error Correcting RAM

All FEA and simulation workstations built by Orbital Computers offer high-frequency, low-latency error checking and correcting (ECC) RAM by default. ECC RAM maintains data integrity for sensitive simulations to provide truly dependable results. Since CAD/CAE workloads heavily tax system RAM and video RAM, all Orbital Computers CAE workstations support a minimum of 64GB 2133MHz ECC DDR4 RAM, with higher end configurations like the A5000 Pro supporting up to 1 TB of system RAM. We exclusively use VRAM-packed professional grade Nvidia Quadro and Tesla GPUs with up to 24GB GDDR5 ECC VRAM, which are designed for prolonged intensive use within a mission-critical setting. Contact Orbital Computers today for help determining how much system and video RAM your new workstation needs.
