How to read performance test ?

Hi guys,

we are having some performances issues, to determine where the slowdowns come from I've launch a performance test on some computers. 

There are a few exemples :


PC 1 : DELL Precision tower 5810 with Quadro K4200 : SolidWorks 2019 Win 10 x64



PC 2 : DELL Precision tower 5810 with Quadro K2000 : SolidWorks 2019 Win 10 x64




PC 3 DELL Precision tower 5810 with Quadro K4200 SolidWorks 2017 Win 7 x64. (basiclly the same as PC 1 but with SolidWorks 2017 and Win 7) :




So I've got some  questions :

   - What are all this values means ? Graphical, Processor, I/O ? 

   - Why PC1 is better than PC2 despite having a worse graphical card ?

   - Is there a way to improve each score buy changing hardware part ? (for exemple : to improve I/O, add more ram)

   - Why a pc with Sw 2017 and Win 7 is 3 time faster than the same pc with Sw 2019 and win 10, and how to fix it ? (I'll buy a beer to the guy how can answer that* !) 


I didn't find some kind a easy to read/use guide to optimize SolidWorks performances, and the users are starting to grumble...  


I'll send the question to my VAR too, so if I have an answer, I'll share it here.
