CATIA Workstations

Custom Workstation PCs for professional level CAD, CAM, Computer aided Engineering, PLM, and 3D using CATIA software.

Performance Optimized

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

CAD / CAM / PLM

ProMagix™ HD60

CATIA for 2D design and modeling is frequency bound, meaning the core speed of the processor is more important to overall performance than core count. For this reason, we recommend our ProMagix HD60 with clock speeds up to 5.3GHz to maximize your productivity.

CATIA FAQ

How many CPU cores do I need?

For most users mainly using CATIA for modeling, the ideal configuration is a high CPU core frequency with fewer CPU cores. If you have a workflow heavy on 3D rendering though, you will see some benefit from 10+ core CPUs. Not all user workflows are the same, so be sure and contact us for an optimized configuration.

Does CATIA require Xeon processors?

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

Quadro or Geforce graphics – which is best?

That answer depends on your specific workflow. For most CATIA users, Geforce cards are a better value because of their GDDR6 vRAM and higher GPU frequency. Some power users may find they need the extra performance that upper tier Quadros can offer. Check out this blog post for more details, but Quadro is likely the best choice here.

Does CATIA use Ray Tracing?

CATIA does use Ray Tracing to accurately depict the effects of shadow and light to create photorealistic renderings using most engines. For that reason, we recommend an RTX series GPU to unlock that capability.
