Is there silicon solo version that is available for download?

It’s not available yet. I believe it’s coming early in the new year.

I spoke with the UK support team last week, again, frustrated that us Solo users are at the back of the pile again.  They've informed me that it will be introduced in January 2023.  I've had a "play" with the demo license for an M1 iMac install and have been quite impressed by the general speed improvements it's likely to yield.  Everything "feels" less laggy obviously from bypassing the translation process that Rosetta 2 loads on it.  

 

Fingers crossed it is early in January, but I'm not holding my breath.

Yes, it's very strange. Solo is just a licensing process. Not like this is different software. Well, will wait until January. 

Well, in some respects you're correct. However, you'll notice, of course, that you can't do Cineware renders and this is because of the installers and other such stuff.  But, yes fundamentally it's EXACTLY the same software.

Hi, we are working on the launch plan. It is basically ready and the announcement will be made as soon as possible.

Still working on launch plan? 😀 

January is almost ending, where is the beef?

Seems like we've missed January 🙄...... Still, apparently it's ready, just waiting for someone to retrieve it from the oven now.....

Yes. Very poor customer support.

" ... the update for Archicad Solo to run natively on Apple silicon is due to be available on the 14th of February ... "

 

Let's hope for the best 😀
