i am in process for selecting the best workstation that will create my assembly using DriveWorks in minimum time. i need help to get the best machine fit with my requirements.

 

software:-

-SolidWorks only (no simulation no render).

-Driveworks pro (very light piece of software).

 

type of files:-

-Assembly file contain maximum 200 part.with 100 drawing file

-i need to general 1000 of this assembly using DriveWorks in minimum time.

 

workstation options:-

Processor:-

 

E5 1630 v3

4

3.7 GHZ

10 MB

E5 1620 V3/v2

4

3.5 GHZ/3.7 GHZ

10 MB

E5 1650 v3/v2

6

3.5 GHZ

15 MB/12 MB

E3 1286 v3

4

3.7 GHZ

8 MB

E3 1281 v3

3.7 GHZ

E3 1240 v3/v2

3.4 GHZ

E3 1290 v2

3.7 GHZ

8 MB

E3 1280 v3/v2

4

3.6 GHZ

8 MB

i7-4790K44.4 GHZ                 8 MB

 

i know that GHZ is the most important issue , but will it be a big deal between  3.5 and 3.7 , notice that in 3.5 GHZ i have higher cash 12 MB

so is the cash is important or not , lets say i compare between E5 1630 v3 & E5 1620 V2 & E5 1650 V2

 

beside i want to compare between E5 and i7 for solidworks , also for workstation is the i7 will be a good solution?

 

for ram i will use 32 GB, graphic card i don't need higher graphic card , so mainly processor is most important right now.

 

Thanks

Lasheen
