For designers and manufacturers, the end goal is usually the same - to make products stronger, cheaper, and lighter and to iterate designs that are easier to manufacture. To do this, many engineers use SOLIDWORKS Simulation software for testing and running analyses as well as realistic rendering software like SOLIDWORKS Visualize to portray real-life products for customer demonstrations and marketing initiatives. But without the right computer hardware, running these powerful tools can cause crashes, lag, and unwanted downtime.
Exciting as it is to get a new system, investing in a new workstation can seem confusing, requiring answers to questions like:
How do you know what hardware is the best fit for the software you use, and the tools you need to create your products?
GoEngineer, Dell, and NVIDIA have come together to eliminate the guesswork and help you get the right hardware configuration for the SOLIDWORKS products you use regularly, fine-tuned to your needs at discounted rates. With this collaboration you’ll receive:

If you’re working mostly in SOLIDWORKS CAD on assemblies containing less than 500 parts, and your everyday workflow doesn’t require heavy use of SOLIDWORKS Simulation or Visualize, the
Precision 3260 Tower
5770 Mobile Workstation
for SOLIDWORKS Standard are great solutions.
Price: $3,624 $ $2,528.15
Price: $5,871.81 $4,101.50
If you’re a SOLIDWORKS user who regularly works with large assemblies (up to 2500 components) and occasionally use Visualize and Simulation, the
Precision 5820 Tower
7670 Mobile Workstation
for SOLIDWORKS Visualize are ideal.
Price: 7,574.71 $5,300.15
If you’re an engineer who works with large assemblies, creating motion animations, renderings in SOLIDWORKS Visualize, and perform Simulations regularly, the Precision 7820 Tower or the 7770 Mobile Workstation for SOLIDWORKS Premium and Simulation are robust enough to handle those demands.

Dell is the number one workstation brand in the world and has continuously evolved their machines into powerful mobile and tower systems. Graphic Processing Units have continued the trend toward more performance in smaller packages, requiring less power. And Dell has incorporated the best NVIDIA GPU products into their desktop and mobile workstations.
Over the years, tools like SOLIDWORKS have made good use of these hardware advancements by adopting GPU acceleration into their software engineering flow, m oving what had been single threaded processes on CPUs over to GPUs for better performance. SOLIDWORKS has also optimized the OpenGL rendering pipeline in 2019 and it’s on by default in 2020 resulting in a smoother experience manipulating large assemblies and complex models.
With Dell, NVIDIA, and GoEngineer, you’re guaranteed the best tool for the job. To learn more about these solutions, or for questions about pricing please contact us .
