Question about choosing workstation

      Hi there

      We are purchasing a workstation for running FDTD and EME. The two solutions we are considering are as below:

      First is a dual-processor solution with a dual CPU motherboard: Intel Xeon Silver 4216 2.1GHz, 3.2GHz Turbo, 16core, 22MB Cache

      And the second one is a single processor solution: Intel Xeon W 2295 with 3.0Ghx, 4.6Ghz Turbo, 18core, 24.75MB Cache

      Thank you so much!

      Based on this post, try to go with more memory bandwidth. The Intel Xeon Silver 4216 has 115 GB/s memory bandwidth compared to 94 GB/s Intel Xeon W-2295 system. And with 2 sockets, 4216 will have 230GB/s of memory bandwidth -- more than twice than the W-2295.
