New Intel E5-2600v3 processor is coming, how fast is it?


Last week we spent testing the next-generation on NOVATTE HPC systems based on the upcoming Intel Haswell architecture processors. We ran not only generic tests, but also several scientific applications (loaded with real-world scientific models) and are really excited to share our findings with you.

77% performance increase for optimized apps
The next-generation NOVATTE HPC will be 77% faster than the current generation! We did not see that kind of performance jump since year 2011. Even when Intel change it’s Xeon architecture from Sandy Bridge to a current Ivy Bridge a year ago, the performance increase was only 25-35%.

The heart of our next-gen HPC systems is E5-2600v3 processors that are built on a Haswell microarchitecture. One of the key features of E5-2600v3 is a new AVX2 instructions set that allows to gets potential x2 times speed up over an Ivy bridge (E5-2600v2) processors.  L1/L2 cache bandwidth is increased too to support x2 FLOPS. Some applications that are already optimized for the E5-2600v3 (e.g. latest versions of Intel Linpack benchmark) will show 70-80% performance gain with just a simple HPC hardware upgrade.

15-25% performance increase for non-optimized apps
Applications that are currently not optimized for E5-2600v3 yet, such as Gromacs and others, will only get 15–25% performance boost mainly due to the increased number of CPU cores, increased processor cache and wider QPI bandwidth.

In summary, E5-2600v3 is a great processor, however you need to optimize your applications to take full advantage of the new processor instructions and hence maximize the efficiency and performance.

5 reasons why Autodesk running on NovaSTACK virtual workstations is a Game Changer in 2014



NovaSTACK is a powerful, GPU-based system which runs complex design and engineering applications and sends their graphics output over the network to be displayed on a client computer. This remote GPU acceleration gives users the same rich graphics experience they would get from an expensive, dedicated PC under their desk.


1.  Synchronize data.
Designers and engineers now have a remote access to all the necessary data files. This eliminates the need of uploading and downloading the data from remote server to local devices.

2. Increase IP protection and security.
Core IP & data files are accessed remotely via Client devices and never leave the server room where NovaSTACK is installed. Clients serve as stateless devices on which you can lock USB ports for enhanced security.

"GRID VCA will provide tremendous functionality and performance for our small business customers. It delivers easy, high performance GPU access to our applications for the highest quality design and visualization experience."
— Carl Bass, president and CEO, Autodesk

3. Decrease production cost.
Access your Autodesk Software from anywhere. New designers and offshore talents can instantly get onboard with quick access to all the necessary applications and production files.

4. Simple to maintain and manage.
NovaSTACK simplifies management of Autodesk workstations: manage only one master template and deliver information to multiple users.

5. Work on 30" monitors.
NovaSTACK client supports up to 30” monitors with native 2560x1600 resolution.
