Ansys Maxwell GPU Accelerator

Based on what I found:

Ansys Maxwell can use GPU to speed up the simulations.

I have an Nvidia GTX 1050 GPU on my computer and a decent amount of RAM. I am running parametric setups Maxwell 3D/Eddy Current.

I was wondering if I can specify my GPU utilization to distribute the computational effort between my CPU and GPU according to my needs. HPC Options settings do not have many options. I was only able to utilize %30 of GPU (peak utilization) however most of the time it was around %5 - %15.

Thank you

    The solvers tend to take what they need rather than all that you give it so it may be the model is small enough that it's not going to fully utilise the gpu.
