3D View performance

Hi folks.

Does anyone know if there are any plans to improve the performance of the Design mode/screen. I’m at around 1.2 million verts, this is probably only a 3rd of my finished scene and it’s running like a dog, this is on a 16gb, i7 3770k with a GTX780ti card. Jumping in and out of Solid/Material/Wireframe mode is a pain in the bottom! I’ve made all the usual changes to the settings in user prefs and viewing all objects with only one subdiv. Anything else I can do?


Divide your scene into multiple layers, and switch between them depending on what you are working on. That helps me a lot.

Linking objects from different .blend files seems to be how a lot of users manage this problem too.

it works well:
