hardware requirements?

Post by tiCreativeMedia » Wed Apr 28, 2021 3:02 pm

Hi,
I'm trying to set up a PC that would run Realflow and I'm having a hard time finding information. Attached is a configuration that I am considering. Is this sufficient? Will realflow work on 2 processors?

Thanks
Dave

Such a hardware is already a luxury for Realflow, and yes, it uses multiple cores of the CPU, but only one GPU for Dyverso simulations. I have used Realflow with Apple laptops in the past, so with much more limited hardware :P
