Performance Improvement Guide
- Update Graphic Card Drivers
Update Graphic Card Drivers by visiting the respective manufacturers website.
- If you have more than one graphics card on your machine (Control Panel > Device Manager > Display Adapters), you can configure your main graphics card to use the Nvidia or AMD Graphic card specifically for SpinFire Ultimate rather than the 2nd graphics card which is typically Intel. You may use this article for how to update your graphic card for Nvidia, AMD and Intel graphic cards.
2. Optimize Memory
