Recently one of our graphics developers was trying to debug some performance issues on an internal software product and he had a closer look at my NVIDIA control panel on my FX3700M.

He noticed something unusual in that my Vertical Sync was forced on (or set by Application) and that by forcing it off, it cleared up the performance issue. He explained that you might want to have it on when you're playing games where screen motion is very high but you need to retain graphic quality for things like affects etc. but is better if it is off for CAD applications where screen motion is interactive.

If you are having sluggishness in rotation, panning and zooming, especially on large assemblies, you might want to go over to your graphics control panel and make sure that Vertical Sync is forced off.
