How do I validate a workstation?

How do I validate a workstation?

I am looking for a way verify/validate the ability of a CAD workstation to handle large files and assemblies?

I use Pro E Creo 2.0.

What do other IT departments at different companies do? Do they have a test procedure for a computers ability?

PTC gives a certified and supported rating system but that doesn't give an indication of ability to handle large assemblies and large files.

Re: How do I validate a workstation?

Unfortunately some places I have worked follow the PTC guidelines which are the lesser computers (Dells, etc).

If someone works some place where they actually build computers on-site now, I would love to hear it, but I would also be surprised. It seems like the typical IT department now a days does not spend much time digging into hardware.

OK, so I purchased a certified Dell workstation (Precision M2800) and it crashes frequently when spinning or zooming in/out. How can I track down what is causing the issue?

The graphics driver on the machine is newer than what is listed in the certified machine document. Is that the problem?

Re: How do I validate a workstation?

It could be the problem. It's easy to try a different driver.

Which CREO version and build, and which graphics card and drvier version is it?

Re: How do I validate a workstation?

Creo/Elements Pro 5.0 (M200)

AMD FirePro W4170M (FireGL V)

Driver 13.352.1002.0

Did you try a different driver? That's a quick thing to try first.
