BricsCAD system requirements
System requirements and recommendations for Microsoft Windows and Linux PCs, and Apple Macs.
|Supported Operating Systems||
The CPU with the highest single-thread performance rating will always excel with BricsCAD®.
Additional CPU cores will bring in higher performance, as more and more functions gets multithreaded computation in BricsCAD®.
|Minimum System Memory:
|Recommended System Memory:
For maximum performance, determine the memory configuration of your PC and ensure that each memory channel on the motherboard is populated with at least one memory module.
|Minimum Disk Space:
2 GB for BricsCAD® Ultimate, installed
|Recommended Disk Space:
We recommend PCI-E NVME as system drives, for both BricsCAD® and Windows. Drawings and support files can reside on slower mechanical hard disk drives, if necessary.
Note: Solid-state disks can be up to 10x faster reading and 20x faster writing data than a mid-range hard disk drive
|Minimum Display System:
||Recommended Display System:
On Microsoft Windows systems, most graphics cards & GPUs from NVIDIA, AMD and Intel® are supported.
On Linux systems, most graphics cards and GPUs from NVIDIA and AMD are supported.
On Mac systems, native Apple display hardware is supported.
BricsCAD®’s non-wireframe display modes are generated by RedSDK technology from Redway3D®. The GPU is used to render this modes.
Note: We suggest that you install the latest drivers available for your display hardware, as recommended by the manufacturer.
Note to Linux users: Hardware acceleration of 3D graphics on Linux systems is NOT supported on:
