AutoCAD 2006 is a popular software tool for computer-aided design systems.
Just like the wireframe mode in 3D modeling applications, AutoCAD doesn’t support multi-threading, so the winner here appears AMD Athlon 64 FX-57.
SolidWorks 2005 is an integrated environment for component 3D modeling, construction and graphic designing. We resorted to the SPECapc script again to perform the tests here.
Just like AutoCAD, SolidWorks 2005 doesn’t support multi-processor architectures. So, our tests prove that if you specialize on applications like this, you will not benefit from dual-core CPUs and multi-processor systems.
