AMD 64 Bit processor

Discussion in 'Pro/Engineer & Creo Elements/Pro' started by Robert Trepanier, Feb 13, 2004.

  1. Any body running Pro/E Wildfire a AMD 64bit processor?

    How does it compare to an Intel box?

    Also, planning on buying an AMD 64Bit and installing XP 64 Bit for AMD
    "evaluation software" with Pro/E Wildfire, I need to go over the 2GB memory
    problem. Anyone tried this yet?

    We have a Sun box with 1GB of Ram an it is too slow for the project.

    Thank you

    I haven't tried a 64 yet, but would strongly recommend if you only want one
    machine, and want to do work with it instead of learn about configuring xp,
    go with a mainstream mid market 'everyone and his dog has one and the bugs
    have been worked out PTC certified' machine if it will do the job

    I see NTSI sell 64 bit machines though, and they know the score, you
    probably wouldn't go far wrong with one of those if you *must* have the

  3. Is Pro/E compiled for 64-bit?

    The only advantage for XP I know of is that you can fairly easily open
    it up to give you 4GB virt. mem. Otherwise you hit the 1.7GB per app.
    wall. I have been told that w/ W2K the only alternative is to run
    Enterprise Server. We do not support XP here.

    There's a download on PTC's website for a 64 bit version

    WE use Windows XP with the /3GB switch and ProE (xtop.exe) does get access
    to 3GB without problems. Remember, you also have to tweak XTOP.exe with the
    imagecfg.exe tool from PTC for it to work.

    Good Luck!
