Computer-aided engineering (CAE) tools carry out processor intensive tasks such as end-to-end simulation workflows for the creation of analysis models. For optimized performance of CAE tools, engineers need a system with:
- High-performance processors capable of heavy data management
- Expansion capability for workstation-grade video cards
- SSD storage configurations for speed and spinning
These processes traditionally have required bulky desktop computers. Although some laptops may be speedy, they can’t handle intermittent periods of heavy processing.
