Hi, I have a customer with a Quadro k2000m based laptop who just upgraded to R6 and who couldn’t get either rendered nor raytraced to work, so I asked him to upgrade his driver, but that didn’t help, so I then asked him to type in SystemInfo and send me the results and it’s obvious that Rhino doesn’t recognice the Quadro K2000m that he has.
IMO this is something Rhino should handle under the hood and it should not be necessary for a user to have to go in to the quadro drivers and either override or make a new profile for Rhino6 and tell it to not use the “let the application choose” default setting. First of all Rhino should pick the better card (can probably be done by checking both RenderVersion and VideoMemory) and the user should be able to choose which one to use from within the OpenGL settings in Rhino too. And SystemInfo should be able to list multiple GPU’s.
(And it would be good if you listed the CPU with support for multiple CPU’s too.)
