Now most customers are using multi-CPUs(processors) machines.
Buy expensive machine and expensive software, it is very waste for us.
As I know, NX 8.0, solidworks 2012 and CATIA are support multi-CPUs(processors). It seems only PTC software don't support this.
At least for creating or updating views in Annotation.
I agree with Gerard. The most time-consuming processes should be considered to be parallelized. Updating a drawing is a good example. Updating each view in a separate thread sounds feasible to me.
Loading a large assembly might be another example. Uncompressing each individual model from MM and loading it into memory could be improved this way.
BTW, It think the rendering module is already multi-threaded.
Today, Creo Elements/Direct Modeling provides already multi-core support in the areas of photo realistic rendering, view calculation in graphics mode (Annotation) and faceting process when loading or modifying models. Using view calculation in graphics mode helps in case a view contains large assemblies.
Currently the FEA module doesn't provide a multi-core support. The FEA calculation is done only with a single core. This should be improved too.
I guess the answer should be "a few cores"
Pretty sure that CED does not really scale with the number of processors available - e.g 16+ Cores of High End Desktops like the HP Z-Workstations
There is indeed other Software which fully scales with any number of cores.
I saw "adoption" on this bulletin board before. But I don't see it recently. I think most ideas have not been adopted. Is this bulletin board working?
