Upgraded video card and increased pagefile size... Solidworks Benchmark Test returning worse results

System Specs: SW 2018, HP-Z640 Workstation, 32 GB Ram, Xeon E5-2620 v3, 2.4 ghz processor.

 

 

I ran a benchmark test a few months ago, and clocked in at about 85 seconds with a Quadro K2200 video card. Last night we upgraded the video card to the new Quadro P2000, downloaded the current driver, and increased the virtual memory from 4 gb to 48 gb. The test looks like it's running faster, but the benchmark is clocking in at 94-96 seconds now (ran it twice).

 

 

Any idea why a (theoretically) better system would slow down my benchmark test?
