Graphics Card Driver Update

It is recommended that you verify and update your graphics card driver to optimize AutoCAD. Use the following procedure to identify your current graphics card driver.

To identify your graphics card driver

  1. Start AutoCAD.
  2. At the command line, enter 3dconfig.
  3. In the Adaptive Degradation and Performance Tuning dialog box, click View Tune Log.
  4. Review the 3D Device section for information about your system's graphics card driver and driver version.

If you find that you do need to update your driver, visit to look for a certified driver for your graphics card. If you do not find one, visit the graphics card manufacturer's website.

Note: If the graphics card manufacturer does not have an updated driver, check the system manufacturer's website. Companies like IBM, Hewlett Packard, and Dell often supply their own system drivers.
