PI suggest whether Intel® Xeon® Processor E5-2650 v4 is compatible for Solidworks simulation or not? Also suggest do we get any benefit by using dual processors for SW simulation.
Thanks and regards,
If for SW Simulation only i recommend multiple core at high clock speed that would be 6 to 12 core, But if you also using CFD software then More core with high clock speed is better.
Thanks for the reply.
My job is to do modal analysis of complex structures. my present configuration is i7 processor, 8core and 32GB of RAM. with this configuration it is failing to compute for some structure especially when I discretize the model with finer no. of mesh elements, so I am thinking to improve my computational resource. present my worry is is there any compatibility issue between SW and the intel xeon E5 2650 V4 processor. and this processor clock speed is 2.2GHz.
There is no compatibility case between SW and processor, they mostly work.
agree with other recomms.

For your information:
Multiple processor cores and FEA: Good or bad?
I'd add also this link FYI. It is from late 2015, but I believe it is still valuable:
It seems that a second processor would slow down performances.
So, just for FEA, I'd follow Jaja Jojo's suggestion (high clock speed with 6 to 12 core) - single processor
