We have an i7-4790k and the Quadro K620. We are doing a house remodel. I downloaded a 3d model for a specific computer case that we have. If I leave the layer with the computer case off, frame rate is good. When I turn it on, it drops significantly.
From the poking around I’ve been doing it seems that the bottleneck is probably at the CPU, since apparently by default Sketchup does not do geometry with the GPU. I have confirmed that the GPU load does not top out with the GPU-Z app.
I’ve disabled hyperthreading on the CPU, hoping that would help, but it didn’t seem to make any difference.
So is there a plugin or something that can make SU do geometry with the GPU? For what we are currently doing, it probably doesn’t matter too much, but it might at least be nice to know for later.
