Impact of GPU on SolidWorks Modeling?

I have been trying to find out where the bottleneck in our systems lie and I'm having a hard time. Here's some specs of one of our systems that I thought couldn't possibly be slow.


  • i7-7700k clocked to 4.9GHz
  • 32GB Corsair Dominator 3000MHz CL15
  • NVidia Quadro K2200
  • 512GB M.2 Samsung 960 Pro


The report I'm getting from the user is that when he's rotating large assemblies and such, it's quite slow. Is this possibly the GPU? I don't know where else to throw money anymore. Does anyone know how much of an impact the GPU has when modeling with large assemblies?

Rendering is not really something we do frequently, so that's not a major concern.



Thanks for any input!
