So I've done a study using 4 of our most common computers and quickly learned that "Verification on Rebuild" makes a huge difference on performance (way more than I thought). That said, I'm trying to figure out what part(s) of the computer are making the biggest difference. I know it's function of CPU and not GPU, but How do I tell if it's taking advantage of multiple cores? My test Tells me the slower Quad core beats out the dual core any day when rebuilding parts.
|RAM||HD||Rebuild with Verification Time (Sec)||Rebuild with Verification Time (Min)||Simple Rebuild (sec)|
|Dell M4800||I7-4900MQ 2.8ghz||Nvidia Quadro K2100Mw/2GB GDDR5||16 GB||250 GB ssd||231.68||3.86||23|
|Dell e6440||I7-4600M 2.9ghz|
AMD Radeon HD 8690M Graphics 2GB GDDR5
|8 GB||500 GB ssd||316.9||5.28||29|
** Part tested was a complex, multi-surface, multi-body part (40 MB) **
Computer build reference:
I'm finding that these articles are missing some important aspects of day-to-day solidworks use... that being rebuild!
I'd love to hear your thoughts / experiences!
