I recently updated to Inventor Professional 2014.
The problem I encounter is that Inventor crashes sometimes when I turn the realistic view mode on.
Is there anyone else who has this problem?
Also the rendering in realistic view mode is much slower than with Inventor 2013.
Are there some ray tracing options that I need to set up?
Same here! I just upgraded to Product Design Suite Premium 2014 from Factory Design Suite 2013 and cannot render anything. Even on the lowest antialiasing setting. Crashes the program everytime!
No issues here...yet

You can use the NFO file to determing the video card and driver version you have installed. More than likely it is old.The system NFO file of that machine Start>All Programs>Accessories>System Tools>System Information. Under components there is Display. Compare that information against the below link.
Verify Hardware certification
If your card is not listed then it is not certified. Try getting the manufacturers latest and greatest one for that card.
The rest of your system specs will help eliminate a number of possibilities.
