Description

Description

It is a common misconception that AutoCAD software doesn’t see much benefit from running on a workstation with a professional, discrete graphics processing unit (GPU). As a result, many users are not getting the full performance and productivity out of AutoCAD that they could be. In addition, a number of Autodesk® software products that are complementary to AutoCAD and enhance the workflow and results from it, benefit enormously from running on a professional workstation with a professional GPU. In this class, we will look at the model sizes, workflows, and application combinations that have a big impact when running AutoCAD and that show measurable benefits when used with a professional workstation.

Target Audience

Target Audience

CAD/BIM Manager, End User, Users, administrators, and purchasers of solutions that are used to run AutoCAD, Autodesk design suites that include AutoCAD, and complementary applications, such as Showcase and 3ds Max
