Performance Mode is a 3D Viewer setting providing users to quickly change to a different performance level.

A low performance mode uses feature values for systems that are a lower end graphical system. This setting will help with rendering and loading of ACT

A high performance mode is intended for more powerful systems that can handle more computations per second (systems with greater CPU power, RAM, high end video cards, V-RAM and faster bus speeds).

The following table shows which settings are changed for each Performance Mode.
