Mercedes-AMG Petronas F1

AMD has introduced new particulars of its collaboration with the Mercedes-AMG Petronas F1 Crew, which will increase aerodynamic testing capability and contributes to the Mercedes-AMG Petronas group profitable its eighth Constructors’ Championship on the finish of the 2021 racing season. Utilizing AMD EPYC processors, the group was in a position to obtain a 20 p.c efficiency enhance for computational fluid dynamics (CFD) workloads used to mannequin and take a look at the aerodynamic circulation of F1 autos.

“We’re proud to accomplice with the Mercedes-AMG Petronas Formulation 1 Crew, a extremely revered F1 group working on the slicing fringe of racing and know-how,” mentioned Dan McNamara, Senior Vice President and Basic Supervisor, Server Enterprise Unit, AMD. For F1 groups, having the simplest computational evaluation of aerodynamics means the distinction between profitable and dropping a race. “With AMD EPYC processors that present quicker computing at a decrease value than the earlier provider, the Mercedes-AMG F1 group can be as aggressive as potential on the monitor and within the information heart.”

Simon Williams, Head of Aero Improvement Software program at Mercedes-AMG, mentioned: “AMD EPYC processors are very dependable and supply us with a platform that delivers the very best potential degree of aerodynamic efficiency to attain our aim of quicker iterative efficiency. We achieved a 20 p.c efficiency enchancment over our earlier system, halving our CFD workload time. It is a massive step up in comparison with our previous positive aspects of 1 or two p.c,” he continued.

  • AMD EPYC processors present a 20 p.c efficiency improve for computational fluid dynamics (CFD) workloads in comparison with the group’s earlier server.
  • Utilizing AMD EPYC processors, the Mercedes-AMG Petronas F1 group pushes the bounds of what’s potential with CFD by creating groundbreaking aerodynamics whereas delivering the price-performance wanted to satisfy the finances rules imposed by the Fédération Internationale de l’Car (FIA).

AMD and the Mercedes-AMG Petronas Formulation 1 Crew introduced a multi-year partnership, first in 2020, combining the 2 firms’ ardour for prime efficiency.
