Dell Precision Optimiser

Dell have released a utility called the "Dell Precision Performance Optimizer" and this contains pre-defined profiles for specific Software, one of which is Dassault Systèmes SOLIDWORKS. This applicaiton is provided to improve performance, by changing various system settings. This focuses on enabling multiple cpu cores, allowing multiple threads. Graphics are adjusted through vertical synhronization to adjust the refesh rate while system power schemes target higher performance and battery life while you're using SOLIDWORKS. 
 
Built into it, is a nice dashboard feature so you can see the memory use fluctuations, CPU utilization, storage activity and graphics.Take a look on http://www.dell.com/Learn/us/en/04/campaigns/precision-dppo?c=us&l=en&s=bsd.
