Mouse over Mate preview extremely slow.

Hi Everyone,


So I've recently installed two AMD FirePro V5900's running CrossFire'd on this machine and they work fantastic. There is a very noticible difference between this and my previous setups.
There is however one draw back that I have found. Whenever I select a mate in the feature tree the highlighted preview of the mated entities takes forever (In comparison to anything else, and compared to running a 6870) to show. It will often freeze solidworks for a second or two before showing. Which is annoying considering they often show on a mouse over as well. So moving the mouse over the feature tree can cause SW to freeze for a second or two.
The same goes for when you slect a part and it high lights it.


Is there a possible reason for this?

If it is it just a card/non-work-aroundable problem, is there any way to turn off these previews?
