We are running SolidWorks on Virtual Machines here at the company. It is very slow and my guess is that the network switch is limiting the performance of SolidWorks. All of the files are local to the server and that's where our VM are at, so I feel like they should be running much faster. My question is what kind of speed and graphic cards are optimal for SolidWorks 2016? I am looking between 100 Mbps, 1 Gbps, and 10 Gbps network switch.
Also what kind of graphical performance is optimal? There is currently 16 Gb of memory assigned to each of the VM that run solidworks.
