    poor solidworks performance on retina macbook pro 13 (late 2013) bootcamp windows 8.1

    Christopher Atkinson

      hi, im running sw2013 student sdk on a retina macbook pro 13 (late 2013, most recent) on windows 8.1 via bootcamp and usabilitiy is very poor (laggy).

       

      for example, rotating a simple part (3d extruded square) is slow, as is using the smart draw function. i wouldve thought simple functions like i mentioned would at least run smoothly, so am wondering if anyone is using the same hardware and experiencing any issues. i suspect it may be to do with having to power the retina display, however, recent 3d games run smoothly.

       

      any help appreciated
