Hi Folks new here and new with Archicad, My Father In Law has been recommended to utilise this product for his sewer system drawings I am about to purchase a new Laptop for him as well as his old one is well past its useful life he is a Mac user and I am thinking he will end up with either a M2 max or M2 Pro chip neither are mentioned as being support or not supported that I can find in any other thread,

 

Can anyone here advise if the are supported ?

 

Regards Burt

Yes they are.

There is even an Apple Silicon version of the Archicad software.

That is about my total knowledge of Macs though.

 

M2 is breifly mentioned here ... https://community.graphisoft.com/t5/Installation-update/Archicad-for-Apple-silicon/ta-p/304108

Thanks Barry I had read that article but it didn't mention the Pro and Max M2 chips so wanted to double check 

 

Kind Regards Burt

There is not much mention of them here as I think they are still relatively new?

But I notice some are using them as they note them in their signatures.

I operate ArchiCAD 26 and the 27 Preview on the M1 Max chip and there are no issues. I would assume the M2 would net the same results.
