Euler 3D Fluid Dynamics

This fluid dynamics simulation is very CPU and memory intensive.  From the benchmark source website:

The benchmark testcase is the AGARD 445.6 aeroelastic test wing. The wing uses a NACA 65A004 airfoil section and has a panel aspect ratio of 1.65, a taper ratio of 0.66, and a 45 degree quarter-chord sweep angle. This AGARD wing was tested at the NASA Langley Research Center in the 16-foot Transonic Dynamics Tunnel and is a standard aeroelastic test case used for validation of unsteady, compressible CFD codes. Figure 1 shows the CFD predicted Mach contours for a freestream Mach number of 0.960.

The benchmark CFD grid contains 1.23 million tetrahedral elements and 223 thousand nodes. The benchmark executable advances the Mach 0.50 AGARD flow solution. Our benchmark score is reported as a CFD cycle frequency in Hertz.


Intel Core i7-3820 Processor Review - Quad-Core Sandy Bridge-E under $300 - Processors 15


Only when run at the 6- thread count does the Core i7-3930K really push past the performance of our new i7-3820 due to the difference in HyperThreading performance and actually having 6-cores to operate on.  The Core i7-2600K is able to stay in the game very well until we hit that same 6-thread level.  Poor AMD and its Bulldozer chip just don’t stand a chance.

This application takes any number of images and attempts to "stitch" them together to make a single panoramic image.

The higher top Turbo frequency gives the Core i7-3820 a better score than the i7-3960X here and a better scoe than the 2600K.
