Slow performance ST10 at new workstation HP Z6 G4

Hi everyone!

 

I’ve got a problem with a new HP Workstation with this specs.:

 

- Intel Xeon Bronze Hexa- core (6 Core), 1,70GH, 8,25MB Cache, 2133 Memory speed.

- 16GB DDR4 SDRAM.

- SSD 256 GB.

- On-board Raid: SATA/600 controller 0,1,5,10.

-  Graphic Card: HP Inc NVIDIA Quadro P2000 5GB 4xDP

- Win. 10 Pro.

- Minitower black

 

I bought the workstation to HP and all the components were certificated by Siemens to work with Solid Edge but when I try to do something it’s impossible to move any piece fluent.

 

I’ve done numerous tests (working in local) like:

 

  • Change the virtual memory valor
  • Change the controller graphic card options.
  • Try to work with different files (.asm, .par, .step, etc.)
  • Change the Application display to Software driven (checking the correct work of the graphic card)
  • Uninstall antivirus.
  • Work without network.

I do not know what else I can check.

 

Any suggestions?

 

Thanks all.

Hi @Gerard_Prisma

 

 

I see two issue here which could be an impact to the performance and behaviour:

 

  1. is the use of the graphics card, and wether it is recognized and used correctly by the system
    Maybe the P2000 is not in use for Solid Edge - could this be?
    Take a vie into the nVidia settings and the links in use for which software which graphics is used
    and
  2. a 6 core CPU but wiht only 1.7 GHz base frequence might not be the best for a CAD usage, due to the fact that - at least SE - is not using multiple cores in perfect.
    So a CPU even with less cores but therefore a high base frequency could perform better

But this of course will not be the main reason for not being able to move any piece fluently.

This more point into the direction of graphics issues.

Hi there @Gerard_Prisma,

 

I agree with @hawcad about the CPU clock speed, not being of a particularly great performance end of their offerings.....something to consider for upgrading at a later time, as the rest of that system looks pretty good.

 

We also have the Quadro P2000 in our machines, and it works very well in our systems. [3.7GHz i7 CPU & 16GB RAM] So I have a couple of questions in this regards....

  1. Does ONLY [looking if onboard graphics is a factor] the Quadro card appear in your "Device Manager" list for "Display adapters? [Right click on Windows app button to find DM]
  2. What driver does it say you have installed?

 

Below is what my system reports.....22.21.13.8590

In no particular order....

 

Do you have a 3D mouse installed?  if so, temporarily uninstall both the device and the software.

 

Do you have hyper-threading enabled?  If so, temporarily disable it in BIOS?

 

Do you have an external USB device plugged into the workstation?  Typically mobile phones can cause an issue.

Yes, cell phones can cause havoc. I beat the keyboard and mouse up on one work station I was managing. I couldn't duplicate the users problems. Then I noticed he was charging is phone all day. Disconnected the phone the phone and the problems didn't occur! Don't know what was the issue was besides the phone connection.

in my experince, HP is a really bad brand for CAD work. Boxx is the best, Xi is not bad for the cash.

The speed of the CPU is the most important issues. More than two CPU is useless for Solid Edge.

The quality of the vid card is the nest most important item after CPU power

More ram never hurts (at least 32, 64 is better)

@12GAGE  We exclusively use HP Workstations with SE and have no issues with them at all... They perform very well.

 

I think the OP has a specific issue that is causing his issue unrelated to the brand of PC.

HI @12GAGE

 

 

 

I also have seen problems and performance issues with HP workstations in the past.

 

I donot know the BOXX but have read really much here about them.

Thanks for such quick responses @hawcad.

The workstation recognizes the card correctly and the drivers are updated.

it's still under investigation the issue.
