DUAL-CORE CPU ISSUES

Question asked by Steven Williams on May 7, 2008

I am running SW 2008 SP3.1 and a dual core 3.4 ghz cpu on on the other machine a single core 3.0ghz and same solidworks. When I open a assembly on the 3.4 it only uses 8-12% of the cpu and takes 1min 13sec. On the 3.0 single core the same assembly uses 40 to 100 cpu and takes 26sec. So my question is are there any known issues with a dual core and 2008? Are the settings that need adjusted to utilize the dual core? Maybe a different driver? I think this problem existed in 2007 but I never noticed. But 2008 is quite a bit faster.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Steven
