Intel MKL-Tweak for AMD Hardware doesn't work in ANSYS Mechanical 2020R2
after searching for a reason why my Ryzen-based System is way slower than an older Intel Platform, I stumbled across the seemingly well known issue of the Intel MKL "crippling" AMD Hardware.
I tried to use the often described workaround of setting an environment variable with the name and value MKL_DEBUG_CPU_TYPE=5 . I directly set it via windows Powershell and used Mechanical for computation of the result, but there was no difference in speed. I also set it via windows cmd before starting Mechanical ADPL in batch-mode. That also didn't make any difference in compute time.
The MKL Library used by Mechanical 2020R2 is " Intel(R) Math Kernel Library Version 2020.0.0 Product Build 20191125 ". The tweak should still work with this version of the MKL, right?
Has anyone an idea, why the tweak doesn't work (anymore)?
