Does geant4 run better on one type of cpu over the other such as intel vs amd? Or is higher core count the better mostly? Thanks
As with all of these types of questions, it depends on your application and use case(s). Unless you profile your application to find the bottlenecks, there simply isn’t a yes|no answer.
First thanks for your reply. I am curious if amd will run into any errors compiling/running geant4 executables. I had a short time with an amd laptop recently where the geant4 b4 executable file would just stop and close while running.i was not sure if it was because of some kind of amd cpu isssue vs intel for geant4
I use a system with an AMD 3900X Ryzen processor. It works perfectly with Geant4.
Any faster with 12 cores?
