I have recently upgraded to an Asus FX753V laptop but the blender interface and viewport movement lags badly compared to my lesser spec Dell laptop I used to have. I have the most recent NVIDIA drivers but can't get smooth operation.

Any suggestions or help would be awesome!

The specs for my new Asus: i7-7700HQ CPU @ 2.8GHz NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 16GB RAM Solid State Drive

    $\begingroup$ Is this behavior on the same scenes? The same display modes? What is your screen resolution now and before? I experienced the same "disappointment" when i got my new rig with a 1080 Ti until i realized i now had a 4k display in comparison to my FHD one before, so blender had to crunch 4x more pixels than before in the viewport. $\endgroup$ – AdamTM Jan 5 '18 at 13:35

  • $\begingroup$ Ok well thats not expected then, something is definitely off here but im not sure if its Blender related at that point. Blender version 2.79? $\endgroup$ – AdamTM Jan 5 '18 at 13:39

    $\begingroup$ Yes, there should be a noticeable difference between integrated graphics and your dedicated gfx card. $\endgroup$ – AdamTM Jan 5 '18 at 13:57

    $\begingroup$ Found the solution! I had to roll back to original nvidia driver for my graphics card, install the latest CUDA software and reinstall blender. Working like a dream. Thanks for taking the time to assist. $\endgroup$ – Byron De Jager Jan 9 '18 at 12:22
