Recommended system requirements for ArtiCAD software

Computer Spec Image
Home|System requirements

Recommended system requirements for ArtiCAD’s design and pricing software on desktop/laptop. (ArtiCAD hosted online will run on any device with internet access via all mainstream browsers.)

Required specification of an Intel based system to run ArtiCAD efficiently:

  • i7, 6th generation processor, or higher
  • Quad core 2GHz or higher (not dual core)
  • 8GB of RAM or higher
  • Microsoft Windows 10
  • 64 bit operating system
  • SSD is preferred over a traditional hard drive

Required specification of an AMD based system to run ArtiCAD efficiently:

  • AMD Ryzen 5 or 7
  • Quad core 2GHz or higher (not dual core)
  • 8GB of RAM or higher
  • Microsoft Windows 10
  • 64 bit operating system
  • SSD is preferred over a traditional hard drive

ArtiCAD’s rendering performance relies upon processor quality, rather than graphics card capacity, so standard current graphics cards should be more than sufficient.

ArtiCAD is a Windows-based program so a desktop or laptop device with the Windows 10 operating system plus the above specification is our recommendation. If you wish to use an Apple Mac™ or Microsoft Surface Book™ device (or similar), we recommend that you opt for ArtiCAD Online deployment, which will work on any device with appropriate internet access.

The specification of one of our optimised specification PCs:

  • Intel xeon E5-2697 V3 processor
  • 2.6 GHz to 3.6 GHz of processor speed, 3.6 GHz with turbo speed
  • 14 core
  • 16 GB of RAM
  • Windows 10

Our ArtiCAD-Online hosted desktop product uses the Citrix Workspace app. Apple Mac™ only supports the following operating systems:

  • macOS Catalina (10.15)
  • macOS Big Sur (11.0.1)
  • macOS Big Sur (11.1)
