Performance

Best-in-Class BIM Performance

To dramatically boost performance on large complex models and further enhance your BIM productivity, ArchiCAD features industry-first background processing support, optimized scaling of multiple-core CPUs.

ArchiCAD 17 runs on both Microsoft Windows(R) and Apple OS X(R) 64-bit operating systems. Enhancing overall performance with improvements to computing speed and power come from GRAPHISOFT’s commitment to expanding the possibilities available to the architect. Background Processing Support, Optimized Scaling of Multiple-core CPUs, and Improved Central Graphics Unit Performance greatly help the performance, navigation and display of extra-large, complex models. Designers will also benefit from faster navigation with OpenGL, improved Solid Elements Operations and faster handling – loading and display – of library parts.

Performance Improvements

Performance Improvements

ArchiCAD 17 Performance improvements are a result of code optimization and the use of new technologies such as advanced OpenGL and Background Processing. Combining these developments with 64-bit and multi-core support makes ArchiCAD 17 the most powerful BIM solution on the market.

Background Processing Support

To further enhance productivity, ArchiCAD 17 takes the next step in multi-core processing: industry-first background processing supports the creation and manipulation of large, complex models and faster generation of complex model details.
