Altair and Intel®: Innovation and Collaboration

    Altair and Intel have collaborated for over 20 years as industry leaders who can be relied on for groundbreaking, high-performance technology solutions.

    Watch the joint webinar recording: "Accelerate Complex Simulations: An Example from Manufacturing"

    • Intel Cluster-Ready (ICR) Certification: Altair PBS Professional, RADIOSS, AcuSolve and OptiStruct are all ICR-certified products – tested and ready to run on any ICR certified cluster.
    • HyperWorks Unlimited (HWUL) Appliance Certification: Altair has achieved ICR certification for HyperWorks Unlimited, the hardware-software engineered private cloud appliance for CAE.
    • Application Benchmarking: Altair and Intel have worked to test performance on a number of Altair CAE applications (click to read reports for both AcuSolve and RADIOSS). In addition, RADIOSS has achieved tremendous performance boosts on the latest Xeon technology. Read more in the latest blog entry or review the article on HPCwire, or read the Intel Solution Brief.
      • Intel, Altair, and Cray have collaborated on Deep-Sea Riser Simulation benchmarking in Oil and Gas – Read the benchmark paper
