Dell Precision Mobile Workstation Display Performance
It has come to our attention that the default configuration of some Dell Precision mobile workstations (e.g., M6700), which are equipped with an integrated graphics card and a specialised NVIDIA® Quadro® card, may be set to use only the integrated graphics card. This default configuration results in a dramatic loss of performance for rendering in the PolyWorks® 3D scene and makes unavailable a new PolyWorks option that further increases rendering speed by optimising the specialised graphics card resources.
