Tech Explainer: How does design simulation work? Part 2 The market for simulation software is hot, growing at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 13.2%, according to Markets and Markets. The research firm predicts that the global market for simulation software, worth an estimated $18.1 billion this year, will rise to $33.5 billion by 2027. AMD and Supermicro have teamed up with Ansys Inc., a U.S.-based designer of engineering simulation software. One result of this three-way collaboration is the Supermicro SuperBlade. Supermicro’s SuperBlade can house up to 20 hot-swappable nodes in its 8U chassis. Each of those blades can be equipped with AMD EPYC CPUs and AMD Instinct GPUs. When it comes to memory, each blade can address a maximum of either 8TB or 16TB of DDR5-4800 memory. For smaller operations, the Supermicro SuperBlade is also available in smaller configurations, including 6U and 4U. These versions pack fewer nodes, which ultimately means they’re able to bring less power to bear. AMD bills its EPYC 7003 Series CPUs as the world’s highest-performing server processors for technical computing. The AMD Instinct MI250X Accelerator contains 220 compute units with 14,080 stream processors.
