Benchmark Center

When deciding on HPC purchases, managers are often faced with the question of which system is the best system for their individual application. In addition to performance, the overall cost and energy requirement of the chosen solution are also crucial factors.

Practical performance measurement is a key aspect when it comes to identifying potential for optimization. Benchmark analyses help you select the right HPC components for you. We therefore work closely with the sector’s technology leaders and offer the option of testing your applications using up-to-date hardware not yet available on the market.

Thanks to its many years’ experience, the MEGWARE Benchmark Center boosts the necessary methodical expertise for the meaningful comparison of figures. Our HPC and AI engineers will be more than happy to advise you on the best configuration for you and provide you with access to the following hardware and software remotely or on site at our company:
