We are planning to by a new computer system and want guidance about the architecture that we should buy. Our existing system is Itanium based and has 32 GB Memory. We want to go for the system that has at least this much memory else we will not be able to solve our problem. At present, we are using 10.2 Update 7 MKL version but we are considering for 10.3 with Update 4.
Following are the questions:
1. Architecture that supports the latest Intel MKL Version.
2. Should it be a pure 64 bit or simulated 64 bit? (Computation time is very important to us and calculations must be in double precision).
Thank you very much for the reply.
I do not have much idea about the servers. What my concern is that our current system is SGI with 8 processors and 32 GB of memory that is Itanium based architecture. And we want to buy a new system that has larger capacity to perform MKL Pardiso operations (Latest version). Our existing problem utilizes entire 32 GB memory. We want to increase the speed and want to go for total memory of 64GB or higher.
So what exact configuration are you suggesting? I checked Sandy Bridge servers, but frankly, I got confused what I was looking for.
I will appreciate your help.
