Solidworks is not made for dual processors or XP64, YET! . SW2006 is 25% slower under XP64 than XP32 on the same dual processor machine. I think also that you will find that each processor speed for the dual core is slower than the single core PC's processor,(at a guess).

Tried and tested it, still have the T-shirt,lol

But, with sw2007, things "may" change ;-)

Check to make sure that you haven't somehow got software OpenGL checked. This sometimes happens and slows the graphics way down when you have a good graphics card.

There are some tools to evaluate this at

Run Star2.1 and Ship in a Bottle first and post what times you are getting. That will give us something to compare to.
