Design and Modelling
Like many design and modelling applications, Solid Edge is frequency bound meaning it predominately uses only one core. This means that selecting the number of processing cores in your Inventor workstation is critical. The frequency of the core determines performance more than any other variable so a workstation with less cores but a higher frequency is ideal. The safely overclocked BOXX workstations are ideal for a productive Solid Edge computer workstation.

Rendering and Simulation
Unlike modelling and design, rendering and simulation are multi-threaded meaning they can utilize multiple CPU cores simultaneously. Due to this, a workstation with multiple cores can provide better performance by reducing compute time. In addition, the most efficient way of handling rendering is to offload the tasks to a dedicated rendering device. BOXX offers a number of these solutions including the renderPRO.
