1 System Memory - size and layout Optimum performance is only possible when application data resides in system RAM. Waiting on slower disk I/O page file adversely impacts system and application performance. System RAM memory base configurations: o Basic: 8GB, Design 12GB, Analysis 24GB Use all memory DIMM slots: o 4x2GB 2-channel DDR-3 on Z200 series o 6x2GB 3-channel DDR-3 on Z400 series o 12x2GB 3-channel DDR-3 on Z600 and Z800 series 32-Bit application virtual memory limit = 2GB* 64-Bit application virtual memory limit = system memory + OS page file** *Virtual memory for a process can be extended to 3GB using special Windows XP OS boot option /3GB. A side affect of this option is that it reduces the memory available for the OS and device drivers and could reduce performance and reliability. **The actual limit imposed by the OS varies depending on virtual memory reserved by the OS, device drivers, and other user processes. CPU - frequency and multi-core Fast CPU clock frequency Large CPU cache Dual-core Core i5 or Quad-core Xeon o Typical usage: Part and small assembly design, weld design and analysis, machining, engineering calculations, with limited user multi-tasking Quad or Hex core Xeon o Typical usage: Intense larger assembly CAD, structural analysis, design optimization, advanced photorealistic rendering. In addition typical multitasking office automation, connection with workgroup or PDM server, interoperability Advanced rendering, tessellation, and structural solver are three operations which will automatically take advantage of multiple CPU cores.

2 Pictured below are two performance traces* of a typical Pro/ENGINEER benchmark. The white line represents the percentage that the disk was in use. The blue line represents the system memory usage. Observation: Trace on left shows insufficient memory and very high disk usage resulting from hard page faults. Trace on right shows adequate system memory and significant reduction in relatively slow disk I/O. Resulting in a reduction in elapsed time from approximately 60 minutes to 20 minutes. *Traces captured by HP Performance Advisor. Free tool found at

3 Graphics GPU and frame buffer memory Use professional 3D graphics AMD FirePro or NVIDIA Quadro Certified driver for OpenGL Larger frame buffer memory to contain graphics data for multiple model and drawing windows More frame buffer is required when using multiple CAD windows, high-detail tangent edges, and photorealistic rendering Set Vertical Sync to Force Off in the NVIDIA control panel -> Global Settings Recommend 1GB graphics memory Display size, number, aspect ratio Performance Monitor Wide Aspect 16:10 ratio S-IPS panel for enhanced color accuracy at ultra-wide viewing angles Use native display resolution Dual display configurations: o Allows the application to span displays for maximum model size and detail. o Allows the user to organize multiple CAD related windows Here is an example of AMD Eyefinity which allows up to four physical displays connected to a single ATI FirePro graphics card. In this example Pro/ENGINEER window can expand to cover the 4x1 display configuration. Displays 1 through 4

4 The performance trace below shows how Pro/ENGINEER will utilize the graphics card memory. The green line represents the percentage of graphics memory in use. In this example three Pro/ENGINEER windows of the same assembly consumes nearly 100% of the 768GB memory on a Quadro FX1800 with dual displays. Open Window 3 Open Window 2 Open Window 1

5 Storage speed and security Dedicated HDD for application data RAID 1 (mirrored set) basic fault tolerance Solid State Drive (SSD) to reduce power consumption and noise-level Software 64-Bit and tuned system BIOS Window 7 64-bit 1 OS High performance power plan Creo Elements Pro (Wildfire) bit HP Performance Advisor o o Recommended system BIOS settings 1 and 2 CPU configurations Intel Hyper-Threading Technology Disable (default) Idle Power Savings Normal Runtime Power Management Disable Intel Turbo Boost Technology Enable (default) Enhanced Intel Turbo Boost Technolog Enable 2 CPU configurations Memory Node Interleave Disable (default) NUMA Split Mode Disable (default) 1 Systems may require upgraded and/or separately purchased hardware and/or a DVD driver to install the Windows 7 software and take full advantage of Windows 7 functionality. See for details.

6 Remote Workstation flexible access and security HP Remote Graphics Software More options to access key workstations o RGS Sender for HP blade or desktop workstation with CAD, CAE, critical applications, and data. o Core component of HP blade workstation. o Design data stays securely in data center Remote user controls desktop and applications o RGS Receiver for remote or VPN access from mobile workstation Mobile Disk encryption for increased security HP 3D DriveGuard for increased reliability Virtualization consolidate workloads Parallels Workstation Extreme 4.0 Windows 7 x64 guest OS Full performance AMD FirePro and NVIDIA Quadro graphics Remote access via RGS Sender on guest OS Allocate multiple guest OS and workloads using Z800.
