    Did Solidworks start to use another cpu core?

    Oliver Raymond

      Before SP3 in 2013 I could only use 13% of my cpu (1 core) while rotating a model, now after SP3 I can use 25% ( 2 cores).

       

      I thought solidworks said this wasnt possible?

       

      Has anyone else noticed this?

          Interesting.  I know that watching cores during the benchmark, there is a fair amount of jumping around cores in tasks outside of rendering and multiple cores are used.  They may have silently rolled out this abillity.  I know that the big difference between 2012 and 2013 is the fact that simulations now use a solver that uses all 4 cores and 8 threads.  So, it may be possible?
