AutoCAD Workstations

Custom workstations designed for smoother operation and real time visualization to maximize your workflow.

Performance Optimized

Our AutoCAD workstations are specifically designed for single threaded workflows to maximize performance without wasted resources. You won’t find a faster PC for AutoCAD anywhere.

Expert Build Quality

Every PC we create is meticulously crafted by expert hands using only premium grade parts. The end result is a faster, more reliable PC that helps you get more done.

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 workstation PC we create today.

2D/3D Modeling

ProMagix™ HD60

AutoCAD is largely single threaded, meaning single core processor speed is critically important when paired with the proper RAM and solid state boot drives. The HD60 is optimized for both 2D and 3D modeling for maximum performance without the waste of those additional cores. Pair with a professional grade Quadro GPU for higher precision and accelerated render times.

AutoCAD FAQ

How many CPU cores does CAD need?

For most AutoCAD workstation users, the ideal configuration is a high CPU core frequency with fewer CPU cores. Unless you’re also doing heavy rendering, more than 8 cores won’t provide much performance advantage. Not all user workflows are the same though, so be sure and contact us for an optimized configuration.

Do I need Xeon for CAD?

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

Quadro or Geforce graphics?

That answer depends on your specific workflow. For most Revit users, Geforce cards are a better value. But for heavy render tasks, Quadro often provides more horsepower. Check out this blog post for more details.

Is Hard Drive speed important for CAD?

As a general rule faster SSDs will reduce load and save times, especially when working with very large, complex models. You may see some diminishing returns with the very fastest PCIE Gen 4 drives though.
