Optimizing NVIDI GeForce & System for Rhino

I have searched the internet and these forums for about 30 min and am looking to see if there are any tweaks I can use to optomize my GPU (or anthing else for that matter) for performance.

Below is my config (which will be upgraded in a few weeks to 64GB DDR4 3200mHz
Any suggestions? I am using Rhino 5 until I can save up for 6.

Rhino is designed to work best with the driver default settings.
This is why we routinely recommend running a “Clean install” when updating drivers to eliminate any settings that have been diddled.

Well, that’s easy enough. I am surprised that there is nothing at all that could help. Thanks for the info anyways :slight_smile:

There never really is anything in the drivers to change, all those settings can be set by the software itself, it’s something that maybe mattered 15 years ago.

There’s allways things that can be done. First step is figuring out what’s causing your slowness. What are you experiencing and what are you comparing against?

Thankfully, there is no slowness…just looking to make things like rendering and certain operations faster :slight_smile:

I personally flip these two settings- I see more of an effect on hybrid laptops than desktops.
Smarter folks may disagree and if so please correct me-

I also make sure a windows profile for rhino is set to high performance. Again more effective in hybrid laptops-


thanks for suggestions :slight_smile:
