No lag here...
Different version of Solidworks sometimes have different video card driver requirements. I would still check to make sure that you have the latest approved and tested driver for your video card using http://www.solidworks.com/pages/services/VideoCardTesting.html
This was a helpful suggestion and link.
I have found that our video cards pass all tests (Nvidia Quadro K4200) however, the graphics driver required an update which was initially unnoticed due to the IT protocol in place restricting some system monitoring features.
Driver is now updated, and I will report back after some time spent using the system.
did you migrate all the files saved in 2016 to the current release?
This was not done as a 'Batch' process, we are converting as and when we continue work on projects.
Could this be problematic? this method worked for us without problem when upgrading from SWX2014 - SWX2016
We are implementing PDM in December, so i imagine this will help version control and access efficiency.
Thanks for your help
I'm running some mechanical simulation based on 2016 files on 2018 SP0.1, simulation startup and save time increased a lot (1 out 4 cores at 100% for minutes...).
Yes, definitely witnessed a slow down here too. Moved from 2017 SP3.0 to 2018 SP2.0.
Our machines ran 2017 fine, 2018 is definitely slower spinning a model around, zooming in and out, also mating and switching between models.
We have custom machines, all 4 users experience same performance issues, same machines.

I originally thought it was video card driver related. Have tried several drivers for our K4200's to no avail.
We have tried the Solidworks RX recommended driver, the Windows 7 device manager update driver wizard, and the latest driver from the Nvidia website.
Currently running driver version 188.8.131.5258, dated 30-Apr-18.
Performance is pretty average.
Ben Dupres, what driver version are you running?
