Ram and processing problem

Question

Hello,

 

I've got VW2018 and the soft is terrible slow.

My computer is a Windows10, Intelcore I7 3.6GHz, 32Go RAM, Gefroce GTX 1080 TI

Everytime, the processing use max 18% and the RAM max 11Go

WHY?????

Can you help me?

The service of Vectorworks don't answer me.

 

Thank's a lot

Please reply back with the following from your machine:

 



As well as with details on what parts of using the application are slow, and if the slowness happens in new blank files with just a few simple test objects, or only in more complex files?

It was everytime.

Working on different drawing and a collegue with a laptop Apple don't have the problem and it was smooth with all.

Me with a "big" computer, it don't work

 

Thank's

Disconnect two of those three monitors, unplugging them from your computer entirely, then restart Vectorworks. Launch one of the files you were seeing extreme slowness in before and navigate around, let me know if the same slowness happens, or if it gets worse or better.

After unplugging those two monitors, run the dxdiag utility again and send me the new resulting txt file please.

Nothing in either of these that would indicate any common issues that I can see, I have a very similar hardware setup to both. The only thing I would recommend next is to completely disable any security/antiviral software as well as any automated backups, restart the machine and see if that helps. If that doesnt do it, these cases would need to move into regular support from here.

Can VW access more than one core on a quad core machine?

 


Rendering will, yes, but not geometry calculations like editing/moving objects around for instance.

So what you are saying is that a quad core machine is no better than say a dual core and that processing speed is most important.

For now(*) - yes.

Look for CPU with fastest single core performanc or Turbo Speed.

 

If you want to do also CPU Rendering, you have to give up some

single core speed for having many cores.

 

 

(*) There might be some improvements possible in the future for CAD

work that can be divided into more threads like loading Files, creating

Sections or Hiddenlines.

But you may still be good with an i5 and 4 fast cores without hyperthreading.

Like for Games, such more-than-single-threaded tasks will never profit from

a 32 core 64 thread AMD Threadripper 2 CPU.

To add on to what @zoomer said, take a look at these two Knowledgebase articles for additional insights:
