SOLIDWORKS® leads the global 3D computer-aided design (CAD) industry with easy-to-use 3D software that trains and supports the world's engineering and design teams as they drive tomorrow's product innovation.

What's New for SOLIDWORKS 2018?

Design & Modeling

Selecting the number of processing cores in your SOLIDWORKS workstation is critical. SOLIDWORKS is a frequency bound application, meaning that it predominantly uses only one core. Since the frequency of that core determines performance more than any other variable, a workstation with less cores (but higher frequency) is ideal. Because of this, BOXX safely overclocks our SOLIDWORKS workstations up to 4.8GHz delivering the fastest, most productive SOLIDWORKS computer on the market.

Rendering & Simulation

Unlike modeling and design tasks, rendering and simulation are multi-threaded and take advantage of multiple CPU cores, however, performance gains level off after ten cores. Therefore, an ideal solution for SOLIDWORKS simulation is an overclocked eight-core or ten- core APEXX workstation.

If you need to render your SOLIDWORKS assemblies, you have options, each with different compute requirements. SOLIDWORKS Visualize is a standalone, GPU-accelerated rendering tool based on NVIDIA Iray, so overclocked, multi-GPU APEXX workstations are ideal for this type of workflow. Many BOXX customers integrate CPU-based rendering tools like KeyShot into their workflows. In this scenario, you may require dual Intel® Xeon® solutions with multiple CPU cores.
