Solidworks 2018 on Dual CPU Xeon issue

Hello, everyone.  We moved SW2018 to more powerful PC with configuration:

DUAL Intel® Xeon® Processor E5-2630 v4 10C/20T (25M Cache, 2.20 GHz)


256 SSD

Video: Quad P4000


The issue that program uses only two physical CPU cores (the total CPU cores available in the PC 2x10). In BIOS I disabled hyper-threading function, but result is the same. On older PC with CPU i5-6400 Solidworks uses all 4 physical cores.  The tests where made doing the same command in SolidWorks. By the way we are not use simulation function, just section view, making 2D drawing.  Is anybody can explain that strange situation and guide me how to improve Dual CPU usage on SolidWorks2018?

Thank you in advance.
