Out first client has just moved to Creo2 and I'm finding it sluggish. I'm thinking an updated graphics driver may help. Here are my system specs:
Windows 7 64 bit
Xeon E5630 2.53GHz
Nvidia Quadro FX3800
Driver version 191.75
I'm going to update to the latest driver but I know that sometimes the latest driver isn't the best so I thought I'd see if anyone has any experience here. Drivers to avoid with Creo2, etc.

I've found Creo 2 to be very sluggish, regardless of RAM and video card. Here's what I've discovered:
Graphics card with 2GB RAM (Quadro 4000 helps)
Changing from the Smart filter by creating "My Filter" in the Selection option of the File/Options panel helps. Since I'm always selecting edges and surfaces, I put those items in "My Filter" and make sure the box is checked for "Set My Filter as the default selection filter". That speeds it up a lot when selecting items and trying to do dynamic panning and rotating. The only time I've noticed that My Filter is not reset to the default, is when I'm leaving IDD. It's set to Smart and the sluggishness returns. Another process that kills performance is surface copying. If the filter is set to "All", it's very slow, but once you set it to Surface, it's much quicker. Once you get specific with what you can select, speed picks up.
I'm beginning to wonder if there's some sort of memory leak with the Smart filter, or the default filters in general.
