    General non-functionality on Laptop

    Yes, from what I've read about this model, the onboard Intel cannot ever be taken out of the equation, you can just tell it to the 1050 when necessary. Data is sent to the 1050 to process and then renders go back to the Intel to pass on to the display. This certainly isn't ideal. Probably cost cutting in some way as far as design.

    Thanks All for the help on this. I did learn that even when using the 1050 GPU, the Intel GPU is the connect between it and the rest of the computer. The Intel decides what to pass off to the 1050. Things are still workable for "in a pinch/snow day/work from home" tasks, but as a main machine, it's not very happening. Cheers.

    I've had good/decent usability on my office computer (spec's in signature) with 2018, but I'm now trying to use my laptop, the spec's of which shouldn't be that far off in performance.

    Thanks Art V I'll check that. Yes, In the NVIDIA Control panel I have both the global and application preferences set to the High Performance (NVIDIA) GPU. And I am getting very good usability now with navigation in 3D WIreframe and OpenGL, but VW itself, menus, copying/pasting objects, selecting etc is painfully slow.

    Ok, thanks!

    Ah, sounds good! So would this GPU issue explain all the hanging I'm experiencing? Even just clicking a dropdown menu?

    Thanks for the assist again, I'll keep searching. Cheers. EDIT: Though I found this interesting.... Look at the Ambient Occlusion setting.

    Internal Monitor Yes, I've changed via the NVIDIA control panel. I'm still observing in the resource manager that only the Intel GPU is being used for everything.

    I just took a look at my GPU monitor and it looks like the app is still using the Intel one. The setting I changed was for the app to select the GPU, now I'll try setting system default to the 1050, and have the app use System Default. But here's the latest dxdiag before I do that, with VW open. DxDiag2.txt

    Default for Vectorworks wasn't set to the 1050, it is now, and am restarting, so far it's the same behaviour with Loading Spotlight Workspace.

    Forgot to mention I'm on Windows 10... (I'm double checking to make sure that Windows is using the 1050 for Vectorworks by default.) DxDiag.txt
  14. Hi Again All, I'm trying to work on an ASUS laptop with an i7-7700HQ CPU and a GTX 1050 GPU (which should be decent to my knowledge). I've disabled my anti-virus to reduce interferance, Startup hangs for approx 5 min at Loading Workspace, and then takes over 1 minute to recognize each individual mouse click. Does anyone have any advice? Cheers!

    Understood, that definitely makes sense. Thanks again!
