Different than my signature. Just got a m2 max 96GB or ram studio. Archicad is not even useable. Came from a 8 year old PC with only a 970gtx and 16GB of ram and it smokes this studio. 

 

When drawing on the mac I can not see what I'm drawing. Click to start a wall and I can't see it until I click the second point. Makes in unusble. I tried suggested redraw options. I have every thing maxed and have tried all other combinations with no change. 

 

Using Archicad 26 solo and it and the mac is up to date.

The M2 Max is lightening fast and there are zero issues with Ventura, so something obviously wrong with your installation.  Did you download the Apple Silicon version of Archicad (vs Intel)?   And, when you say "mac is up to date" - does that mean that you installed Sonoma?  If so, see this article for all known issues pending the next update from Graphisoft (some time this fall/early winter)... and that only 26 and 27 will be fully supported on Sonoma:

AC 27 USA and earlier   •   macOS Ventura 13.6.3, MacBook Pro M2 Max 12CPU/30GPU cores, 32GB

It was a brand new mac and came with sonoma. That's what I updated. After much googling I recently found the article you linked too.

 

I was just about to make a bootable use with ventura to revert. I'll post back if that fixes it.

I downgraded to Ventura and it seems to have solved my issues. Forgot to upload my software key before I did so now I have to deal with that. They really need a better system for the keys.
