Increases in Performance in Mathcad Prime 2.0!

Posted by Rachel Jones on 21-Feb-2012 08:15:00

In the last 2 blogs, we discussed some of the new features available with Mathcad Prime 2.0.  In today's blog, the focus will be on the increase in performance that will be a major feature of the product's release.

Dont forget to follow us on Twitter @concurrenteng and @PTC_Mathcad for more updates and information!

Engine Improvements in Mathcad Prime 2.0!

One of the most important features of the Engine Improvement, is that the previous version of the Intel Math Kernel library, has been upgraded from 7 to 10.2.

Anna Giangregorio from PTC's marketing team discussed the new improvements in performance with Chahid Ghaddar, a Software Development Engineer, and Senior Technical Consultant at PTC.

Ghaddar explained, "The MK Library will automatically detect the users architecture and grab the suitable number of free cores on multiprocessor machines to provide the best performance."

Speed Gained when running Mathcad Prime 2.0 on multiple processors, for 2 large computational tests... 


In Mathcad Prime 2.0, users have the option of changing the number of threads from a default of 2 processors.  With linear algebra functions, numerical tests have shown that running on 2-4 processors will always show the best improvements.

64 Bit Architecture...

Improvements accross the technology industry have resulted in most computers having 64 bit architectures.  Mathcad Prime 2.0 works with this architecture, allowing for work with larger applications and more memory than ever before!

Mathcad's solve blocks will also benefit from increased performance and robustness due to the new licensed and integrated optimization solver from KNITRO.

All of these features combined provide you with a huge upgrade in performance and technology, to accelerate your calculation processes!
