Dassault Systèmes has released the latest version of GEOVIA Surpac: Surpac 6.7. It features design improvements for grade estimation and vast increases in the processing speed of block models.

Surpac 6.7 helps users to optimise performance of block models through its support of multiple CPU cores, reducing estimation times from hours to minutes. Using all of the available CPU cores significantly increases the block model processing speed, performing estimation, reporting and constraining of much larger models in a fraction of the time.

Surpac 6.7 highlights include:

  • Up to 95% reduction in processing times for block model operations, such as estimations, block maths, constraining and reporting, provides quicker results for analysis.
  • Up to 200 times performance improvement for inverse distance, ordinary and simple kriging, and nearest neighbour estimations when used with a minimum recommended configuration of a Quad core CPU with hyper-threading.
  • Advanced Drill & Blast functionality for easier editing of blast holes and animation of blast sequence.

As Surpac 6.7 uses the available processors to their fullest capacity, performance improvements for certain operations will be in line with the number of cores available.
