Rhino 6 freezes computer completely


I’ve been reading some posts regarding these, but they were all from early Rhino versions.
I’ve just installed Rhino 6. Freezing happens mostly when seeing 3d models on the perspective view. My guess is some trouble at my laptop, since it’s an ASUS Ultrabook with integrated GPU.
Just wanted to be sure that if that’s the case I’ll stick with Rhino 5 and carry on.

Here’s my Systeminfo

Your display driver is very old, try to find an update for it.

Here’s the driver:

If your computer complains the new driver isn’t validated for your computer, here’s how to fix that:

All that aside, that’s a very old computer and the Intel graphics does not meet Rhino’s minimum system requirements.
It’s time to get serious about replacing the computer.

Not according to Intel

I’ll look into that.
4 years and a half might feel like a lot but for it works like a charm for the use I give it.
If that’s the case, I’ll stick to Rhino 5 then.

Thanks a lot for the prompt response!

Yes, it should work pretty well for V5.
The graphics specs went way up for V6.

The automatic driver update tools have a near 100% failure rate.
That’s why I manually found you the newest driver.

Thanks a lot for the driver. I’ll finish some tasks first and then I’ll try updating to see how it goes.
Nonetheless, I’ll probably stick with V5 for now.
