When viewing a Lumion-rendered model, it may come as a surprise to some that they aren't watching real-life video. The visuals are so realistic, textured and smoothly animated that it makes interacting with Lumion almost like playing a high-end PC game. Indeed, like those games, Lumion works best with a graphics card posting a PassMark score of 6000 or higher (e.g. NVIDIA GTX 1080 and GTX 1070 GeForce).
But graphics cards aren't the only hardware components AEC professionals need to optimize. They also need a Lumion workstation that's configured to support single-threaded workflows and high viewport frame rates that enable such realistic visuals. As opposed to multi-threaded tasks that benefit from more CPU cores, Lumion workflows benefit from increased CPU frequency.
A Lumion workstation to consider is the 4.8GHz APEXX S3 featuring six CPU cores and support for up to three professional GPUs.
