Processors for Solidworks

Discussion created by Guest on Nov 9, 2006
The 2.13GHz Core2 Duo E6400 is about the same speed as a Pentium 4 3.8GHz or Athlon 64 at 2.4GHz.

Core2 Duo at 2.4 or 2.66GHz would offer excellent performance at a reasonable price.

There is NO advantage to Xeon 5100 unless you need more than 4GB RAM. (A Core2 Quad QX6700 is as fast as two Xeon 5150's at a much lower cost - as long as you have 4GB or less RAM. If you need more RAM, the Xeon platform is MUCH less expensive.)
