3D modeling processes consume significant hardware resources. As ArchiCAD evolves with background processes utilizing multiple cores, CPU performance is becoming increasingly essential. Background processes in ArchiCAD leverage multiple cores intensively, making the CPU capacity more essential for running these operations. Background processing helps the performance, navigation and display of large, complex models, but if your computer hardware doesn't have the necessary computing power, your experience can be severely impacted.
In addition, models must frequently be stored somewhere on the machine. This is why 8GB to 32GB of physical RAM is necessary in order to save models and run applications simultaneously.
If your workstation lacks essential computing power, your software applications will run slowly—a frustrating experience when trying to produce a model under strict deadlines. BOXX recommends an overclocked CPU to accelerate 3D modeling and design processes, so the APEXX S3, featuring a professionally overclocked eight-core CPU, effectively supports the multi-threaded background processing capabilities of ArchiCAD and frequency-bound design tasks.
