SolidWorks 2009 performance significantly enhanced by OpenGL VBO support on FirePro

This video compares shaded model performance in SolidWorks 2007 and SolidWorks 2009 running on a FirePro v7700. The primary boost that you see in performance for SolidWorks 2009 is due to support for OpenGL Vertex Buffer Objects (VBO) and the optimized FirePro driver. The numbers from the video for rotating the shaded aircraft engine model 500 times: SW 2007 (w/o VBO): Time: 13.36 sec at 37.50 FPS SW 2009 (w/ VBO): Time: 7.83 at 64.00 FPS
