iv just spend $5k on a new HP workstation to discover that solidworks is only using a total of 25% of my 4 cores when doing rebuilds etc. Giving me a 180 second punch hole benchmark test.

Im running 2x AMD 2218 2.6Ghz, 4 ggi ECC, Quadro 3500, 750gig Hard disks.

when i render in 3D max it uses 100% of all processors and is extremely fast.

is there any way i can optimise my AMD processors for solidworks? or is there any fix for this?
I have already had a discussion with Anna about this and she doesnt know any way around it. Any advise would be much appreciated.

Thanx. Mark M.
