Here is my core PC specification:
- Intel Core 2 Duo E6600 2.4 GHz Processor
- 3 GB 533 MHz RAM
- ASUS P5B-VM Motherboard
Recently I've upgraded my graphics card from
GeForce 6200 TC to
GeForce GTS 250 to play games. I'm programmer in profession and have little interest about graphics softwares. However, my sister uses
Google Sketup 7 (and some other graphics related softwares). She complained about my slow PC when she sketches a complex structure in
Sketup and zoom in and out, rotate, translate that structure. Those operations cannot be done smoothly. Also it took about 1 minute when she renders in 640 x 480 resolution using
iRender plug-in of Sketup. I assured her that it will be much faster on the graphics card I'm going to buy.
However, though I can play latests games in very high graphics detail in 1680 x 1080 resolution (my LCD's native), performance of
Sketup doesn't improved. I'm guessing that
Sketup is either CPU bound or does not use hardware acceleration.
Is there any way to render in
Sketup using hardware acceleration? Thanks in advance.
