    Can a GTX 1050 run Solidworks? Why isn't the card certified? What does  having an uncertified card mean?

    Tom Riley

      I'm a student on a budget, and have set my sites on a Dell XPS 15 as the extra computing power in terms of RAM/Memory you get for your money compared to a recommended Dell 5000 Series laptop seems like a good deal. However, the XPS has a GTX 1050 Graphics card isn't certified to run Solidworks? Why isn't the card certified? What does  having an uncertified card mean? What benefit will a 5000 series laptop with a certified Quadro card give me for the extra money? Any help would be greatly appreciated!
