    Default Laptop lagging

    Hi everyone,

    I used to use this website all the time when I was doing drafting a few years back and using Revit 2008. I am looking at getting back into it and am trialing Revit 2012 so thought this would be the best place to try and get some answers.

    I am still trying to get my head around the new (compared to 2008.) rendering engine and have started reading through some threads to see how that all works.

    My main problem is that it seems to be really slow on what (I think) is a decent laptop. The specs are below. Is anyone able to tell at a glance if there is a bottleneck going on with my hardware? Any help would be really appreciated.

    Intel Core i7-2630QM @ 2.00GHz (rates quite highly on
    8GB Ram
    Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit SP1
    NVIDIA GeForce GT 540M (I'm thinking this could be the problem??)

    If I need to provide any further info for you to work out the problem please let me. I assume that there does have to be a problem as when I used to use Revit 2008 it ran as you would expect with no lag at all.
    Thanks for any help.

    As a follow up I got this additional info out of windows which may help?

    The gaming graphics score is based on the primary graphics adapter. If this system has linked or multiple graphics adapters, some software applications may see additional performance benefits.
    Caution: Based on the results of the WinSAT Disk assessment, your system drive may have slower response times under some workloads. Performance results will depend on the specific applications used and the amount of memory available. If your experience is satisfactory, no action is needed.
