Does anyone have any recommended settings in the Nvidia control panel to get the best performance out of the RTX 4000? it just doesnt seem to be living up to the expectation.
What were your expections and how is it not meeting them?
well i'm mainly asking because i'm trying to prove to the powers that be, that my workstation is under powered to do the work that they have requested from me. the workstation i have currently has a single rtx 4000, 32 gig of ram, a standard 500 gig ssd and a 3.50 ghz intel xeon cpu. in the past, i have used very powerful workstations that had no problem at all opening, closing, manipulating almost any size assembly. didnt matter if bolts and nuts had actual threads or not, there was hardly any wait time. this workstation is slow as F! whether i'm running solidworks or visualize. takes forever to open, close or do anything, let alone, rendering. the quadro rtx 4000 helped some but nowhere near what i thought it would. so i was wondering if there was anything in the setting i could adjust to squeeze as much out of this piece of crap workstation as i can. oh yeah, everything i work on is on my local drive.

What's the spec on that and which version of SW was that?
SW had been getting slower and more slower.
dual 12 core xeon cpu's. i cant remember the speed. duel quadro p5000. 15000 rpm raptor sata drive and 16 gigs of ram. solidworks 2015. currently i'm running 2020
Your old system would do things like opening, closing no faster than your new system. In fact depending on the SSD the new system would open files faster. The old system would certainly be significantly faster on manipulation, rendering etc. You used to have two cards that were essentially the same as the RTX4000.
For daily use the dual CPU's did nothing for you unless you're doing a lot of stuff that actually uses multi-cores, rendering, some FEA and simulations etc.
That being said it could also be how the old one was set up. There are many settings that effect performance in both SW and Windows.
Also, if the reason you have a new workstation is because you have a new job it could be that the old models you were working with were much better in the sense of being cleanly designed parts than at your new place.
