I'm using SW2016 and it's working extremely slow. Most of the day i'm working with several assemblies ( 500-1000 parts) .
I ran the perfomance test of solidworks and got this results:
Graphics: 30.7, Processor: 1.3, I/O: 22.8
We have Xeon E5-2687W v3 3.1Ghz, 12GB ram, Quadro FX GRID K140Q,
I think this hardware should run it much faster.
