Since its release in 1982, AutoCAD has grown into one of the world’s more popular applications. AEC professionals rely on AutoCAD (as do many others) to perform project-critical tasks. The highly compatible application is also backed by TrustedDWG technology that makes it easy to share and store anything you create across cloud, desktop, and mobile platforms. With so many critical workflows being run through AutoCAD, it's essential to have versatile BOXX AutoCAD recommended hardware purpose-built to maximize performance.
At its core, AutoCAD is a single-threaded application. This means the number of CPU cores your workstation has doesn't matter as much as the frequency of those cores. When using AutoCAD to complete 2D tasks like table creation, centerline editing, layout fine-tuning, or geometric object modification, AEC professionals benefit from a BOXX AutoCAD workstation featuring CPU clock speeds that allow them to interact and manipulate large datasets. A top AutoCAD workstation option to drive peak performance is the Intel® Core™ i7 or i9 –based APEXX S3. With up to eight cores performance tuned to 5.2GHz, APEXX S3 also features 128GB of memory and up to two GPUs to support documentation and design workflows alike. Another highly recommended system is the APEXX A3 equipped with the blazing fast AMD Ryzen™ 5000 Series processor (4.9GHz and up to 16 cores), two GPUs, and 128GB of RAM. Contact one of our AutoCAD performance specialists to custom-configure your ideal workstation.
In addition to using AutoCAD to produce 2D designs, AEC professionals can also rely on it to create 3D models. AutoCAD visualization enables you to create and communicate nearly any type of design and more easily demonstrate navigation around your designs during walkthroughs or fly-bys with stakeholders.
Remember, AutoCAD is a frequency-bound application, so the best AutoCAD recommended hardware is optimized for single-threaded workflows, i.e. fewer cores running at higher speeds. BOXX addresses this need by working with our hardware partners to performance tune our systems, including professionally overclocking the APEXX S3. In addition to the APEXX S3, APEXX A3 is an excellent choice for 3D modeling, while APEXX T4, which offers up to four graphics cards, supports demanding GPU rendering workflows. All three are optimal AutoCAD workstations. Contact one of our AutoCAD performance specialists to custom-configure your ideal workstation.
"One of the many things that I have learned over the years is that for a system to really work properly, you need good components. BOXX computers are made that way."
"One of the things I tried to explain was you cannot kill a BOXX. That’s the thing. An eight year-old BOXX will still run. It’s a different kind of system."
Our performance specialists can help you find the right workstation purpose-built for your applications and workflow.
