Ill get straight to the point.
I am a mechanical engineering student and I work with solid works almost every day modeling large complex shit. my current setup is a Vega 64 and ryzen 1800x with a free sync monitor. I have gotten to the point where my computer will start to slow down due to the high load of solidworks on a "gaming" grade cpu/gpu, Might be the drivers but I doubt it. Since I will be doing a lot more cad modeling in the future I decided to invest in a more workstation orientated machine due to the fact that I don't play many video games anymore. I guess it boils down to recommendations on weather I should stick with AMD or move to intel/nvidia based hardware. I really don't want to throw away my existing stuff but any recommendations are welcome.
considering the quadro p4000 or Radeon wx 7100 mainly less than $1000 price range.

pic related. its an engine I am designing

pro cards aren't really that faster , they just have better customer support, imo its waste of money if your'e not a serious company

start with your OS maybe something is hogging your resources? I needed to completly remove indexing and windows defender to get really smooth experience, also fuck AMD cards, I tried to give them chance over the years but always had some issues, especially in graphic programs
>lll get straight to the point.

What did he mean by this? Does he realise a thread died for this?
>fuck AMD cards

Fuck AMD everything. Ever notice the sudden rise in global temperatures corelates with the release of their chips.
better get a new cpu, maybe a new motherboard if the socket isnt the right one

Ah, a fellow s̶c̶i̶e̶n̶t̶i̶s̶t̶ engineer.
All I can say is don't save at the wrong end. I use a dual Xeon workstation from puget systems. Runs a pair of Quadro P5000 to drive four displays. Not the cheapest, but you want all the power you can get, especially if your assemblies get bigger and bigger.
Tl:dr: Any pro card, Radeon Pro and Quadro, works better than gaming GPUs, but the price doesn't matter at all so just buy the cheapest Pro card you can.
Depends on where your problem is. Solidworks generally scales down the geometric complexity of your models to avoid slowdowns from high polycounts. I'm inclined to think that's not the problem based on the image you posted.

On the other hand, if you're using parts with hundreds of configurations then your problem is more centered around file structure than hardware. My experience with solidworks as an ME in industry is that even $3k usd workstations will struggle if you use too many configurations. Everybody seems to abuse this feature to death. Ultimately, its not a problem you can power through.

I would recommend doing some digging to diagnose the problem before splurging on a new workstation. With computer components, price scales exponentially with power and you might find your purchase fails to solve the issue.
