ArchiCAD 19 video card compatibility

Jeff Kogut
Contributor
I've used my current i7, GTX 260, SSD, Win7 setup on ArchiCAD 13-18 with no issues.

Installing 19 caused constant crashes with the nVidia drivers - old, new, WHQL - didn't matter. Graphisoft has only verified Quadro and FirePro cards. http://helpcenter.graphisoft.com/technotes/video-cards/recommended-video-cards-for-archicad-19/


With a couple of other systems in the office here I can report some results:

GTX 260 = fail, crash anywhere from splash screen to 3D window

Radeon HD 5670 = stable, but some shading issues in 3D window, renders are fine

GTX 650 Ti = stable, no issues

HI! We have recommended some adjustments to the registry to eliminate the crashes. In the meantime, we understand that the problematic video card has been removed by the user.

I don't know if it is graphics card related but I can only use my nvidia 4000M
for about 15 minuets before ArchiCAD gets too slow to function. ?

Could you be more specific, or provid a specific link?

i usually work on 3dsmax for interior and exterior night renders. then i tried arch 19 cina render , i liked the speed of it in the morning renders.
but when i render any medium scale design ex. 2 duplex villas and use lights and lamps , the render says calculating gi. and stays about 2 hours and whne it starts rendering about 2 days and thats in low res. my pc is good, i use graphic card quaddro m4000 8gb, windows 7, 250 gb ram. anw 3dsmax renders takes about 1 to 2 hours at full res. so please why does archicad lighting renders take a very long time and thats on test renders time. pls help
