25 Years Experience

We’ve been building award winning workstations for professional workflows since 1997. It's that legacy that we continue to bring to every custom workstation PC we create today.

Modeling / Rendering

ProMagix™ HD60

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. However, 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. Reach out to our sales team for assistance in configuring the perfect system for your workflow.

Archicad FAQ

How many CPU cores does Archicad need?

For most Archicad workstation users focusing primarily on 2D modeling, the ideal configuration is a high CPU core frequency with fewer CPU cores. If you are taking 2D models and rendering out to realistic 3D images using an engine like Cinema 4D, a higher core count processor will accelerate that process. Not all user workflows are the same, so be sure and contact us for an optimized configuration.

Don’t I need Xeon?

Intel Xeon processors are great for highly threaded applications or those that require ECC RAM, but for Archicad, Core i7/i9 or Ryzen are a much better value and typically will perform better overall.

Quadro or Geforce graphics – which is best for Archicad?

That answer depends on your specific workflow. For most Archicad users mainly modeling in 2D, Geforce cards offer plenty of horsepower to accelerate that process and are an overall better value. But for heavy render tasks, Quadro offers more vRAM and ECC support if needed. Check out this blog post for more details.

Is Hard Drive speed important for Archicad?

As a general rule faster SSDs will reduce load and save times, especially when working with very large, complex models or managing multiple windows.
