NVDIA's AutoCAD Performance Driver delivers unparalleled performance gains for Autodesk's AutoCAD software. Developed in close collaboration with Autodesk, the AutoCAD Performance Driver freely couples with NVIDIA Quadro® and Quadro FX professional graphics solutions to deliver dramatic performance improvements (of up to 10X in some cases) over native graphics or consumer graphics cards. The AutoCAD Performance Drivers run within AutoCAD and utilize OpenGL for AutoCAD 2011 and Direct3D for most previous AutoCAD versions.

Known limitation with AutoCAD 2011:
  • The “Advanced Material Effects” option introduced with AutoCAD 2011 is not currently supported by the NVIDIA AutoCAD Performance Driver. The setting controlling this graphics mode (in the Manual Performance Tuning dialog accessed by the GraphicsConfig command) is grayed-out when the Performance Driver is active.
  • Procedural Materials and Maps introduced with AutoCAD 2011 will only display with the material’s diffuse color.
  • Materials and Maps used in drawings coming from earlier AutoCAD versions are supported as they would have displayed in AutoCAD 2010.
