SWX2018 slow down

Hi all,


We have recently moved to Solidworks 2018 sp0.1 from Solidworks 2016 and have since noticed a significant slowdown in overall performance, especially when switching between models and drawings and also whilst working with the models in section view.


Our machines are IC3D i7 3.30 GHz workstations - 32GB ram running 64bit windows 7 Pro which should be OK for what we are using Solidworks for.

The installation was a clean install.


We have only noticed the slow down since the upgrade to SWX2018 last week so i am confident in saying this is a SWX related issue and not a hardware problem.


Just wondering if any one has noticed a similar slow down and if there were any suggestions as to what may be causing the laggy performance?


Thanks for any suggestions
