Is there a way to increase the memory used by solidworks 2016?

I have HP Z420 64 bit with 16GB of RAM, Intel Xeon CPU E5-1620 @ 3.6GHz and NVIDIA Quadro K2000 with 2GB DDR5 dedicated to graphics tasks.

I've used CATIA for many years and just started using Solidworks 2016 with most recent service pack and it seems like Solidworks is taking along time to complete tasks. When I monitor resources while waiting for the task to complete, it is not even close to using all of my CPU, RAM or Graphics Memory, but still takes longer than I feel like it should.

 

Are there any settings internal to Solidworks that throttles the system usage?

 

Thanks.
