ArchiCAD is professional-grade software intended for architects, structural engineers, and construction specializing in Building Information Modeling, or BIM. But without PC hardware that’s been specially configured and tuned for ArchiCAD, you’ll never tap into the software’s true potential.
At Velocity Micro, we’ve been building workstations designed and optimized for ArchiCAD for over 20-years. Our custom build options allow you to focus on the components for your specific workflow to maximize the performance for your investment. Choose from one of these hand-selected options below to get started or contact our sales team for assistance.

If your workflow consists of using ArchiCAD for modeling and design, we recommend focusing on a system with a lower core count and higher core speed such as our ProMagix HD60, now available with Intel Core processors as well as AMD Ryzen 2. These applications are largely frequency-bound, meaning core speed will be more important than core count. However, newer versions of ArchiCAD will continue to become more multi-threaded, making six or eight core processors a good investment for “future proofing.” For power users, we’ll overclock compatible processors at your request, giving you even more core speed of the money.
Local rendering of ArchiCAD designs using secondary software like Cinema 4D is a much more multithreaded process, meaning investing in more cores will yield faster results. So if your workflow involves rendering, we suggest investing in multi-core, hyperthreaded processors like Intel Core i7, i9, or Ryzen Threadripper paired with a high powered NVIDIA Quadro GPU.
