I just built a dual AMD Opteron system, 2 gigs of ram, Quadro FX3000. I am using Max 6 (SP1).
Right now I am modeling a character using edit poly and NURMS. Now the the character has gotten into the 20,000 poly range, the viewports are starting to chug with the Maxtreme drivers.
I tried using the Direct3D drivers and the viewports are much faster in edit poly mode.
Am I doing something wrong or is Direct3D actually better for poly? (Both Direct 3D and Maxtreme seem to fly fast in Mesh.)
Thanks for your help,
