Graphics Performance Dialog Box

Graphics Performance Dialog Box

These settings control hardware acceleration, effects available through your system’s
graphics card, and software performance settings.

Some advanced graphic performance settings are only accessible if you enter -GRAPHICSCONFIG on the command line.

List of Options

The following options are displayed.

Hardware Setup
Displays the graphics hardware information such as the video card, driver version,
and the current virtual device.

Effects Settings
Sets the options for hardware acceleration.

Hardware Acceleration
Enables the use of hardware acceleration and provides control to all effects settings
available for the current driver. When off, only the Smooth line display option is
enabled.
High Quality Geometry (for capable devices)
Creates high quality curves and lineweights, and automatically turns on the Smooth
line display option.

NOTE:This option is only available for DirectX 11 (or later) virtual devices.

Smooth Line Display
Controls the status of the full screen anti-aliasing effect. This option removes the
jagged effect on the display of diagonal lines and curved edges. When High quality
geometry (for capable devices) is turned on, the Smooth line display option is always
on. Otherwise, you can manually turn it on or off.
Advanced Material Effects
Controls the status of the advanced materials effect on-screen.
Full Shadow Display
Enables shadows to be displayed in the viewport.
Per-Pixel Lighting (Phong)
Enables the computation of colors for individual pixels. With this option turned on,
the 3D objects and lighting effects appear smoother in the viewport.
Uncompressed Textures
Increases the amount of video memory to display better quality textures in drawings
that contain materials with images or have attached images.

NOTE:It is recommended that you do not use any type of remote access application, such
as NetMeeting, Remote Desktop, or any other windows emulating software in conjunction
with hardware acceleration. Most remote access applications do not support hardware
acceleration, and as a result, can cause general display failure and instability.
Prior to using a remote access application with an AutoCAD-based product, check with
the software vendor to see if it supports hardware acceleration and if not, disable
hardware acceleration prior to starting the remote access software or use the /NOHARDWARE
command line switch to start an AutoCAD-based product in Software mode.

Restore Defaults
Resets the values to the defaults based on the Graphics Performance’s evaluation of
the graphics card.

Tuner Log
Displays the tuner log which reads your system and decides whether to use software
or hardware implementation for features that support both. Features that work with
your system are turned on, and features that might not work with your system are turned
off. A log file displays the results, including information about your graphics card.
