Hi,

 

Does any one have the approximate release date for SolidWorks 2013. Is it as other years, the back end of September early October?

 

I need to know, as our IT Dept will need at least a months notice to do my computer upgrades.

 

At present I am using Windows XP on 32bit with a Nvidia Quadro FX1700 card.

 

As SolidWorks 2013 will not install onto Windows XP our IT dept are upgrading me to Windows 7 @ 64bit.

 

Would I also need a better video card and what sort of minimum Ram is recommended?

 

Also I have in the past upgraded by using the SolidWorks installation manager and searching for upgrades and letting it do it automatically.

 

When I change from 32bit to 64bit will it download the correct version of SolidWorks automatically (I assume there is still a 32bit versions as well as a 64bit version).

 

Or do i have to select the correct OS etc? These are questions our IT Dept will need to know.

 

Thanks

 

Mark (SolidWorks 2012 sp4)
