      My current workstation consists of:

      HP Z820

      Intel Xeon E5 2670 v03.06

      64 GB RAM DDR3

      4GB NVIDIA Quadro 6000

      I am currently doing my research in 3D turbulent simulations with mesh approx. 10M elements. My workstation is a bit slow but I have a $1000 to buy a new workstation.

      Can you recommend a new build for a better workstation?

      Hi,

      I recommend you to plrease check this forum discussion: Please recommend the configuration of the computer workstation (ansys.com)

        I appreciate the guidance. I have checked that discussion but the budget difference is large. Therefore, I started this discussion as mine is only 1000 USD

      How many parallel licence keys have you got access to?

        Even though my workstation has 20 physical cores and fluent detects 32, I am only able to run each simulation at a maximum of 12 cores.

      OK, that's the licence limits. One issue with the high core count chips is memory and data passing: the bottleneck is getting data between the cores. What models are you running, and if you monitor cpu & RAM how does it look? Does the current machine have one chip with 20 cores or two chips with 10 each?
