How do I improve graphics on T570 i5 for CAD work?

I have issues displaying CAD drawings (just plain old line drawing in 2D) with the Intel HD620 graphics installed. Is there any way to improve this or do I just have the wrong machine for doing this type of work.

 

Thanks, Paul

Hi Paul,

 

Welcome to Lenovo Community! And happy to have you here.

 

As I understand that you are looking for the query regarding Intel HD Graphics 620.

The exact performance of the HD Graphics 620 depends on various factors like L3 cache size, memory configuration (DDR3/DDR4) and maximum clock rate of the specific model.

I'll suggest you to first adjust some settings in Graphics Properties like 3D. Adjust some of the settings present in 3D section and have a try.

I hope the above information helped you.

Please feel free to post in Lenovo Community Forums if you have any further queries!

 
Regards,
Prabhansh

Had a good play with those settings and it hasn't resolved the situation or even made any slight change. What's the next step Smiley Happy

Hi again, 

 

If that's the case even I'm not aware of other possible solutions Smiley Sad 

As per this thread, they are suggesting that it should work but not sure.

Maybe a external GPU would help?

How do you like the T570 otherwise? Looking to pick one up once available in the US. Any other issues? I might have to opt for the dgpu.

Been ok otherwise, if I had my way again would have gone the i7 and the geforce card. Super quick for saving to the SSD, I do a lot of webstore updates etc so having to access big folders of pics can be a pain with a hard drive.

How much main memory do you have.  That may be the limiting factor
