Compatibility Inquiry: iMac 2020 with Archicad 26 and Future Upgrade to Archicad 27



Hello Graphisoft community!

I'm currently using an iMac (Retina 5K, 27-inch, 2020) with the following specifications:

  • Processor: 3.6GHz Ten-core Intel Core i9
  • Memory: 64GB 2667 MHz DDR4
  • Graphics: AMD Radeon Pro 5700 XT 16GB

I would like to inquire about the compatibility of this iMac configuration with Archicad 26. Has anyone had experience running Archicad 26 on a similar iMac model, and if so, were there any performance issues or recommended settings?

Furthermore, considering an upgrade to Archicad 27 in the future, does anyone anticipate any compatibility challenges with the specified iMac configuration? Are there any precautions or insights to keep in mind for a smooth transition to Archicad 27?

Your experiences and advice are highly valued. Thank you for sharing your knowledge!

Operating system used: Mac Intel-based Sonoma
