View Full Version : ATI HD 5870M slow in Maya

08 August 2012, 11:50 AM
I'm not sure if I should post this in the Maya forum or here, but I suspect its a driver issue. I have an Asus G73 and I'm pretty happy with it, it handles most the stuff I do well enough. I've been using XSI for about 3 years now and its always dealt with that fine. I wanted to pick up some old stuff I did while I was still working in Maya but unfortunately, my Vieport slows to a crawl in component mode (vert, edge or poly). Quite apart from having to re-remember shortcuts (which is terribly :P) the performance is so slow I can barely get anything done.

I know ATI is flakey and the few times I've searched for "ATI HD 5870M" I've generally seen replies of "Buy nVidia". Given that I don't have that option, is there anything anybody can reccommend?
