I've experienced lag when viewing in the viewport window, selecting objects', and moving selected objects'.

Attempted Solutions:

  • Adding more computer RAM (previously 8gb, now 64gb)

  • Reinstalling Blender

  • Turning off OpenGL Depth-Picking in the User Preferences


The issues always happens over time, while at first there is no lag, no matter how simple or complex the scene is.

Computer Specs

Minus the said RAM upgrade:

OS: Windows 11 Home (15-dy2024nr, Natural silver) Brand: HP 15-inch Laptop CPU: 11th Generation Intel Core i5-1135G7 GPU: Intel Iris Xe Graphics RAM: 8gb (now 64gb) SSD: 256gb


I forgot to mention it's just about everything that slows Blender down when I'm using it. So, again, scene complexity is not a contributing factor to my lag I think.

According to Blender's Requirements, your config alone shouldn't have issues other than lacking an actual GPU, but that would impact mostly rendering, not usage.

You don't tell which Blender versions you are using, so I suggest you to make sure you have the latest stable 3.0. If it is still not working, try the latest nightly 3.1 alpha.
If you still encounter issues, consider going to the menu Help > Report a Bug.

  • $\begingroup$ update works fine, left it open on a simple scene and it is good, i guess 3.0 just hates my pc? $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ another update, it just takes longer for it to kick it and start lagging $\endgroup$
