This year at Solidworks World 2018 (Booth #501) at the Los Angeles Convention Center, AMD will showcase updates to products that were only shown as technology previews in the past, as well as some groundbreaking new solutions that increase flexibility and enhance productivity for SOLIDWORKS CAD users.

Now with the complete Radeon™ Pro WX workstation family line-up from Radeon™ Pro WX 2100 card to our latest Radeon Pro WX 9100™ card, you will witness professional graphics cards from entry level to professional product design, including the ability to visualize CAD designs in real time game engines with virtual reality using high end workstations from DELL and BOXX.

What to expect at Solidworks World 2018

DELL Precision 5720 All-in-one
The Dell Precision 5720 All-in-One workstation blends powerful Radeon™ Pro WX 7100 graphics with a beautiful 27” 4K display, , ample connectivity ports, and outstanding audio capabilities in an attractive desktop unit.  The display supports touch input, and the Dell Precision 5720 All-in-One is Dell’s showcase system for the innovative Dell Canvas, both of which enable the productivity enhancing drawing interface of the new “Sketch Ink” feature in SOLIDWORKS 2018.


DELL Precision 7520 Mobile Workstation with Sonnet’s eGFX Breakaway™ Box Thunderbolt™ 3 external GPU
The Dell Precision 7520 Mobile Workstation with Radeon™ Pro WX 4130 graphics offers the power to design in SOLIDWORKS in a portable 15” laptop configuration.  However, when a Radeon™ Pro WX 9100 card is added to the eGFX Breakaway Box from Sonnet and attached to the laptop via Thunderbolt™ 3, the Dell Precision 7520 Mobile Workstation reaches higher levels of GPU performance, capable of powering larger model design and faster GPU accelerated rendering with Radeon™ ProRender.


Rendering and VR powerhouse with the Boxx Apexx 4 featuring Radeon Pro WX 9100 card and Ryzen™ Threadripper™ 1950X processor

Visualization in virtual reality is increasingly important for design review, ergonomic analysis, training, and much more.  Real time game engines like Unreal Engine 4 offer powerful tools for VR visualization and the development of interactive experiences using CAD data.  AMD will show how the Radeon™ ProRender Add-in for SOLIDWORKS enables a GPU accelerated photorealistic renderer and a streamlined CAD-to-VR pipeline that is fast, easy to use, and broadly accessible.  See this powerful pipeline in action at the AMD booth #501 at SOLIDWORKS World 2018, or check out the webinar replay, the joint AMD/Epic video, the Radeon ProRender Add-in for SOLIDWORKS, and the Radeon ProRender Game Engine Importer for Unreal Engine.
Running SOLIDWORKS from the cloud featuring AMD server GPUs

Cloud Service Providers like Amazon Web Services continue to improve upon the application streaming and virtualized desktop experiences that they are able to deliver to practically any device with internet connectivity.  AMD server GPUs take advantage of industry standards and hardware based virtualization to enable high quality delivery of cloud based applications with predictable performance and industry leading price/performance.  Using a Dell Wyse Thin Client, AMD will demonstrate how effective and productive one can be running SOLIDWORKS from the cloud.


If you plan to attend, don’t forget to stop by our session where our subject matter expert, Chris Hall, will be speaking about “From CAD to AR/VR: Choosing the right workflow” Monday, Feb 5, 4:30 pm – 5:30 pm (Room 402A).
