Hello Do you have any advice about buying a mid-level graphics card here in the UK, for using with SolidWorks 2020 and Visualize. USE: I need it to create anti-aliasing in SolidWorks as my current graphics card (VIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 3GB) doesn't appear to be able to do anti-aliasing. I am running Windows 10 (x64). MY COMPUTER: -…(Show moreShow less)
UPDATE: Okay I have 'bitten the bullet' and ordered that refurbed NVIDIA Quadro RTX 4000 from ByteStock. I needed to move quickly for business reasons. They offer a 5 year warranty. They seem to be a new venture and hopefully will be trying hard. They certainly seem quited responsive on webchat. A PS I have yet to get a price from them but I…
Intel Xeon E-2278G or Intel Core i9-9900KF Both have the same max frequency and the best single core performance. But ... which is better? Which will give stutterless performance and better performance when working with very large assemblies? Which is more responsive when editing a dimension for example on a very large assembly? What…(Show moreShow less)
It depends on your daily work but I found through my comparative testing for day to day assembly opening, saving, closing, drawing saving, editing, loading that the greatest benefits were found with a higher single thread performance, so long as you have a decent amount of cores and threads to keep up. A lot of operations are inherently single…
Hello all, First let me say that I have never built up or selected a workstation for CAD purposes and know little about PC in general, just enough to be dangerous. I plan on upgrading to Solidworks 2020 and need to spec out a Dell workstation capable of handling this plus Simulation standard edition for the next foreseeable 4 years if possible.…(Show moreShow less)
Hi, nice configuration. For the same price I would go for the faster RAM - but it will not matter that much. And yes - I was talking about the turbo speed. Dell Precisions are well built and a recommendation. This includes the next-day-on-site-warranty as well. Go for it!
I have a Dell Precision 3540 with AMD Radeon Pro WX 2100 GPU (In addition to integrated Intel 620 graphics). This is a SW certified machine and should work with driver version 19.Q4 from AMD. However, Solidworks regularly crashes the graphics driver, and when I run SW RX, I see that it does not recognize the AMD driver, as seen here: The…(Show moreShow less)
Hi Eric, We have 20.Q2 Windows 10 driver posted on https://www.amd.com/en/support on May 13, which includes fix for this issue. Please give it a try and feel free to contact me in case if you see any issues.
I'm using an older video card that is neither supported by Windows 10 nor SolidWorks. It kinda works for the most part but, I have a lot of trouble zooming and rotating. The system often hangs for 10 seconds or more when I'm trying to move stuff around on the screen. The system RAM and CPU are not being taxed heavily at all during these times so,…(Show moreShow less)
Hello, I am a product design student and I am looking to buy a new laptop before I go into my final year. I have managed to save up to a point but I am definitely looking below £2000. I do think I'm being fairly ambitious because I would like a laptop I can draw with (.i.e. Photoshop, Illustrator and sketchbook) as well as handle Solidworks,…(Show moreShow less)
No, Callum, I didn't mean to recommend you try using the X1 Carbon so much as to relate that I've had lots of experience for general computing with X1 Carbons (and NOT yet with SolidWorks) and can vouch for their general build quality as relates to the Yoga. So I meant to recommend checking out the Yoga for your price range so long as the screen…
Also in future the Hardware and Graphics section would be the better place for this kind of question. I think you have the power to move the thread by editing your first post but I'm not sure. No biggie though.PreviewHide preview
