For different types of CAD WORK- what is a more suitable Workstation or Desktop PC?

Posted on : Jan 15, 2020

Before deciding whether PC’S or Workstation is preferable for your CAD WORKS, it’s essential to understand your software or hardware needs. Even if a pc has sufficient power to perform different tasks like word processing, web surfing, etc but certainly workstation has double power which can handle data analysis, animation, cad, renderings and many more along with video editing, as well as video and audio creation. Apart from the cost factor, durability also plays a major role because the workstation has a higher level as compared to PCs. Following are important highlights which should be considered in workstation while working on CAD software:-

RAM- Random Access Memory-It’s all about the total quantity of computer memory that gets stored and retrieved on it. Because if RAM is slow then additional new data needs to be loaded but if it’s having more RAM then it will move smoothly through models. Thus for any workstation, the level of RAM is very much essential for fault-free CAD work. Nowadays ECC (Error Correcting Code) Memory which is available in workstation or servers are most reliable, saves time and avoids clashes before it hits your system.

Hard Drives/SSD-Secondly it also majorly depends on hard drive/SSD  because these days Solid State drive work more efficiently with lesser possibility of physical error, greater loading capacity, and higher opportunity for data storage. Thus hard drives make a direct impact on CAD Designers as low quality drives freezes workstation whereas higher quality drives

GPU (Graphics Processing Unit) – It plays an important role in displaying output on the screen because higher GPU makes your CPU to perform lesser processing work. Therefore graphics cards are designed based on the complexity of visual display on the screen. So it’s always beneficial to have potential CAD software with proper graphics cards on the workstation for competence and effectiveness. Through graphic cards minute detailing of your CAD Designs can be easily viewed along with the speed efficiency of showing visuals of your models. Thus graphics card plays a critical role when it’s about making CAD designs.

Processing-Processing means all about the basic computational work of your machine. And it’s essential to match your machine’s processing power with the computational requirements of your CAD software. Because any CAD Work requires higher processing power, more complex operations along with advanced processing chips.

Monitors- Monitors makes it possible to display your designs and can be easily swapped in and out along with meet your CAD needs and makes engineers to easily succeed in CAD Work
