This question already has an answer here:
I'm trying to use Blender v2.78 on my new notebook which has the following config:
CPU - i7-6700HQ (4 cores)
Mem - 16G
GPU - GeForce GTX 1070 (driver is updated to the latest 376.09)
OS - Win10 64bit family version
Immediately opening the software, I'm experiencing lag everywhere interacting with the software UI, almost lag for every basic operation with mouse/keyboard.
I did some search on the web and tried several things:
a. changing user preferences -> system -> window draw method (as well as some other parms that look possible to help for me)
b. setting up 3D parameter via my Nvidia control program, turning on whatever possible for blender.exe
c. running a previous blender version, say v2.77/v2.76b
But the problem still there, not smooth not at, very frustrating.
What's interesting (and somewhat ironic) is my old laptop which is a ThinkPad x1 carbon (win7) with just integrated graphic card can run the software smoothly, no lag at all when operating or editing in the UI though its performance is too low to render the scene quickly and beautifully.
I'm not sure what to do to make it work well for my new notebook. Appreciate if anyone could suggest and help on this.
Thanks very much!
