I’ve just updated my system to the brand new windows 8 (which for me is working great). Although I have no issues with any software a currently own and tested I Just cant seem to make blender work properly!
I have a fairly good machine (i5 Ivy bridge, 8Gb RAM, 2Gb ATI radeon video card), but blender just seem to be uuuultra slow! It worked great on windows 7, but now its impossible to work.
In summary, if you have a fairly complex scene (mine was still under 70k faces) it takes like 5 to 10 seconds to right click select any object and when you press “P” to run the game, it droped from 60FPS (on windows 7) to 30 FPS (on windows 8) and real time rendering of textures when all over the place, like on every game tick, the maping changed so it becomes surreal!
So, has anyone updated to windows 8 yet? Has anyone faced the same (or other) issues using blender on w8?
(Yes, I have updated the graphic card driver to the w8 version).
I think I’ll have to install a linux dual boot in another partition for now, just so my project doesnt stop, while we dont have enough information on this.
If anyone knows what this could be, it will be helpfull!
