Do you think SolidWorks 2016 would work properly on a computer with the following characteristics?
WorkStation HP Z440
Intel® Xeon® E5-1603 v4 processor
Cores: 4, Clock Speed: 2.8 GHz, Cache: 10 MB, Memory Speed: 2133 MT/s, Hyper-Threading: NO
Memory: 8 GB
Hard Drive: SATA 1 TB, 7200 rpm
Graphics: NVIDIA® Quadro® K620 (2GB)
I would like to know if the number of cores in the processor affects the SolidWorks' performance?
Somewhere I read that the software was not multithreaded and so the number of cores was not of great influence, but I've heard comments that it works best with 8 cores, what do you think?
I need advices since I am going to invest a good sum of money in the purchase of the workstation and as far as the price of that model is the one that is within my reach.
Thanks in advance
