I need help livening up my solidworks performance.
I'm running SW 2005 sp 3.0. with a Radeon 9600, AMD Athlon 64 2.4ghz,4gb ram, Windows XP pro SP 2.
For starters, SW 2005 with 4gb is a lot more sluggish than SW 2004 with1gb memory. I notice this most when I try to rotate views.
Both SW 2005 and SW 2004 run slower with the /3gb switch enabled, but SW2005 slows to a crawl. My times for ship in a bottle: SW 2005 /3gb: 46 seconds for 10 rebuilds SW 2004 /3gb: 35 seconds for 50 rebuilds SW 2005: 30 seconds for 50 rebuilds SW 2004: 30 seconds for 50 rebuilds
I had a similar problem when I "upgraded" my video driver, I had to roll back to the old driver.
