Lately I have noticed that Solidworks has been running quite slow. I have checked the driver for my NVIDIA Quadro FX1700 and I am using version 22.214.171.1243, however the recommended version is V 126.96.36.19990.
Is this likely to have an impact on performace?
It could but maybe not. The drivers "recommended" are the ones that have tested/certified by SWorks. Later drivers may or may not work better - they haven't been given the approval yet.
