The performance in SolidWorks 2005 doesn’t depend as much on the power of the graphics accelerator as the results of other 3D modeling applications. But nevertheless, we can still conclude that Nvidia Quadro FX cards are ahead. These graphics cards show the best performance results.
And it is evident not only from the average benchmark scores but also from the more detailed performance reports for work with particular details of the app.
Note that the results obtained for the test working with the engine model are slightly off the route. This gives us to understand that Nvidia Quadro FX cards are not always a preferred choice for SolidWorks 2005. I would also like to point out that the graphics memory speed has quite a bit of influence on the performance in this application. Therefore, Quadro FX 3500 graphics card may sometimes be faster than Quadro FX 5500.
