THE FASTEST WORKSTATIONS FOR SOLIDWORKS
Selecting the number of processing cores in your workstation computer is critical. SolidWorks is a frequency bound application (meaning that it predominantly uses only one core). Since the frequency of that core determines performance more than any other variable, a workstation with less cores (but higher frequency) is ideal.
Photoview360 and SolidWorks Simulation are bandwidth bound (meaning they commonly utilize multiple cores simultaneously). Therefore, if you incorporate these applications into your SolidWorks workflow, a workstation PC with more cores can provide better performance to complete your renderings or simulations faster..
