I was surprised to see GeForce GTX 285M passmark score is only 901 and I have ran some large scenes with this machine.
Thanks for sharing your experiences with the 285M, Chewbacca. That card is from 2009, and in the reviews they seem to compare it to the GeForce 9800 GTX.
You mentioned that it handled large scenes well. How large were the scenes in terms of the total vertex count? And what sort of frame rates were you getting and what was the resolution of the Lumion window? (Turn on the FPS
button in the Settings
menu, and look for the vertex number in the top right corner).TIP:
Performance is very much affected by the resolution of the Lumion window. The lower the resolution, the better your framerate. I assume you're using an MSI GT660? If so, the maximum resolution is 1366 x 768. If you try to connect it to an external monitor with a higher resolution, eg, 1920x1200, the framerate in Lumion will be significantly worse.
