How to take advantage of computer?
2 views (last 30 days)
I'm using a HP Z840 workstation, it's a bit of a beast with two processors (E5-2643) and 128GB RAM. Is there anyway to speed up Matlab processes with this? Or does matlab just run as fast as it can? I'm aware the RAM lets me run larger arrays but is there anything else I can do? Or is it all done by default?

MATLAB runs as fast as it can. MATLAB will automatically use parallel computing for sufficiently large mathematical calculations that match some patterns.
Sometimes it helps to explicitly code parallel programs using parfor or spmd or similar. Not as often as you might guess at first, though: the communication overhead can make it slower.
