SolidWorks Simulation Workstations

Desktop workstations optimized for hardware intensive analytic tools such as Solidworks Simulation.


Building the perfect workstation since 1997

we’ve been building powerful workstations optimized for the entire SolidWorks suite since day one of our 25 year history. Whether your focus is on 3D CAD, CAM, Product Data Management, Electrical Design, or Technical Communication, our ultra performance workstations will reduce wait times and improve interactivity in your workflow to make you more productive.

Intel Based Workstations

ProMagix™ HD360MAX

Though many of Solidworks’ applications are frequency-bound, Simulation applications do take advantage of mid levels of multi-threading. For customers preferring an Intel solution, we recommend the dual Xeon powered HD360. Combining the power of two highly threaded processors with a mid-range NVIDIA Quadro like P2200 or RTX 4000 will have you finding solutions to previously unsolvable problems.

ProMagix™ HD80

For customers looking for AMD, we recommend the Threadripper powered HD80A.This single socket workstation offers higher core frequencies while still providing unique multicore capabilities.

SolidWorks FAQ

How many CPU cores do I need?

For most Solidworks Simulation users, the ideal configuration to take advantage of the software is a multicore CPU with moderate to high frequency. Not all user workflows are the same though, so be sure and contact us for an optimized configuration.

Does Solidworks Simulation need ECC RAM?

ECC RAM is designed with an additional module on each DIMM to detect and avoid memory related errors before they occur. For the most complex simulations running on high RAM density hardware, ECC is advantageous, but not required.

Quadro or Geforce graphics – which is best?

Though we normally recommend Geforce cards because of their overall performance and value, Solidworks in one application that really requires Quadro to run optimally. Check out this blog post for more details, but Quadro is likely the best choice here.

Is Hard Drive speed important for Solidworks?

Yes, to an extent. As a general rule faster SSDs will reduce load and save times, especially when working with very large, complex simulations. You may see some diminishing returns with the very fastest PCIE Gen 4 drives though.

I don’t know what I need – can you help?

Yes! Our sales team is happy to help with putting a configuration together to meet your needs and budget. Email or call us at 804-419-0900 for assistance.
