GPU on new Graphics card not recognised



I have just upgraded my Graphic card to a GeForce GTX 1060 6GB
Sketchup 2017 is running next to useless, so much so that Formit is now starting to look good (and that really does drive me crazy lol)
I then downloaded the Sketchup 2017 Checkup and it says that my graphics card memory has less than 1mb.
What do I need to do for Sketchup to recognise that it has 6GB of GPU at its finger tips please?
Is this just a bad design fault in the software as I am noticing a lot of people are having the same problem and are back grading to a previous version (my previous version is Sketchup 8) but I haven’t been able to find a solution as yet.



Checkup reporting just 1Mb memory is a bug in the Microsoft utility that Checkup uses.

Try opening the nVidia control panel, and tell it to use the nVidia card for SketchUp.

SU works fine with your card, I understand.


It is also to be recommended that you check from the Nvidia website that you are using the latest driver for your card. Drivers installed from a disc included with the card or autodetected by Windows are not always the latest or the best.
