    Computer hanging up in generating graphics stage but GPU utilization is <5%

    Shane Kozlowski

      I have an NVIDIA Quadro K4000 GPU and I'm trying to open a 3.5GB assembly. The assembly can't make it past Generating Graphics. I have the preview part during load setting off, all of my drivers are SW recommended, and my GPU utilization never jumps above 5%. Could my processor or RAM be the culprit? I have 16GB DDR3 @ 1333MHz. My processor is an i5-4440 which is not good enough for what I'm doing but I have been told that the processor use should be low during the generating graphics process. Am I thinking correctly? Why can't i get past the generating graphics stage? Eventually the program crashes.

      I just ran a benchmark test if the info helps:

      Graphics...........8.9

      Processor.......37.9

      I/O..................21.4

      Overall...........68.3

      Rendering......72.5

      Real View.........8.4

      Simulation......77.2
