Laura, any idea why ST9 Studen is running so slowly after I upgraded to a GTX1080 ? Hardware incompatible ? if so, I guess I'm out of luck since we don't get MPs right ?
See my reply to your other thread, here......

The GTX1080 is not supported by either the video card manufacturer or Siemens for professional CAD graphics. No future Maintenance pack from Siemens is therefore likely to address this issue.
The GTX1080 card and similar are designed for the gaming market which has very different technical requirements to that of the professional CAD market.
Because of this any CAD user who chooses to use one of these cards is pretty much on their own. That is neither the card vendor/manufacturer or the CAD vendor can offer support.
So what to do?
Try a different graphics driver - this may not necessarily be a newer driver. You will have to experiment here.
The other area to try is the Solid Edge Options > View window. Look for Application display in the upper right hand corner. The default may be Automatic Selection and Graphics card driven (advanced). If this is the case uncheck Automatic selection and select Graphics card driven. There are several other options to try. Note that to see these options you need to have a part file open in Solid Edge.
If you have a rexcent i7 or even i5 CPU using their inbuilt graphics can be far superior to the GTX or gaming type of graphics card. I am using an i7 CPU in a Microsoft Surface Pro 4 and I find the graphics performance superior to the mid range professional graphics cards of only 2 or 3 years ago - I have not yet loaded any Maintenance Packs on to the first release of ST 9.
I'm using an i7 3930k.
This is a terrible excuse for the abismal performance. Im using several other CAD packages, all of them working flawlessly on the same hardware.
Solid Edge is the only one that behaves like this.
