Mentor Graphics Calibre nmDRC Supports Intel Xeon 5160 Processor

Mentor Graphics Corporation has announced that Calibre nmDRC, Mentor's physical verification tool, is fully supported and qualified on the new Intel Dual-Core Xeon 5160 Processor. Calibre nmDRC with Hyperscaling demonstrated excellent run-time performance during benchmark tests. Hyperscaling provides the productivity designers need for nanometer era circuit (IC) designs.

Mentor Graphics has successfully conducted shared memory processor (SMP) productivity benchmarks evaluating the performance of Calibre nmDRC on the Intel Dual-Core Xeon 5160 processor.

Hyperscaling technology brings superior scalability and lightening fast run times for computationally intense applications. Hyperscaling offers advanced data processing options that provide the fastest single CPU and multi-CPU performance to verify blocks in seconds and full chips in hours. Hyperscaling extends the useful life of existing shared memory processor systems, and fully utilizes single and dual-core processor distributed rack systems. Hyperscaling improves productivity whether designers are working in 180nm or 45nm technology nodes.
