Is ther a work around for this graphics card?
You can try using Open GL (see #13 at Frequently Asked Forum Questions ), but I'm not making any promises.
Can try to activate real view graphics
I tried following these steps from other forums and it worked for me:
1.) Open up the registry editor (Start Button -> Run... -> "regedit")
2.) Navigate to "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\SolidWorks\SOLIDWORKS 2015\Performance\Graphics\Hardware\Current"
3.) On the right side doubleclick on "Renderer"
4.) copy (Strg+C) the Value
Since I have a GeForce Card mine is "GeForce GTX 970/PCIe/SSE2". Yours will be different, mentioning an AMD card. It is important to copy ALL what's in value.
5.) Navigate to "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\SolidWorks\SOLIDWORKS 2015\Performance\Graphics\Hardware\Gl2Shaders\R420"
6.) On the left side (the treeview) rightclick on "R420" and choose "New / Key"
7.) Rename the new key with the copied value (Strg+V)
8.) Click another Key and back to your newly created to make sure you are editing the right values. The right side should be empty but an entry (Default) whose data is "value not set"
9.) rightclick in the right side and create "New / DWORD (32-bit) Value"
10.) Rename the DWORD to "Workarounds" and, after that, doublecklick it
11.) Leave the "Base" to "Hexadecimal" and enter 30008 into the field "Value data"
12.) Leave the Registryeditor open and start Solidworks. Create a new part / open an old one and try to enable RealView.
Also using tips from SolidWorks training "Large Assembly Design" enabled to reduce load on graphics card up to 30%
I use the latest drivers from Nvidia, and Realhack. Works great on my XPS 15 9550.
Realhack just does the above tweaks with one click.
