SketchUp not faster on new iMac

Hi,

We have upgraded our machine from a iMac Mid 2010 to the new iMac 27" 5K with 4GB Videocard and i7 4Ghz and SSD.
But when we are working on our models there is no speed increase.
It is no difference of the model is on our desktop or on the server. How is this possible ?

some user’s have reported a slow down in their workflow with retina screens due to smaller inferencing points, finer lines, smaller icons and/or the use of certain styles…

it is only when the model is being loaded or being saved that it’s file location will have any effect on perceived speed…

with a good server connection you would need to run a speed comparison test to see any differences…

while you are modelling, SU uses an ‘in memory’ copy…

User workflow, model Style and loaded Extensions can easily outweigh hardware gains…
