Archicad 25 + Windows 11 ARM (Snapdragon processor)

Kooperative E45

Hi everyone,

I would like to buy a new mobile workstation for my office and I was wondering if Archicad is now supporting ARM Windows processors like the Snapdragon 8cx.

Does anyone have any experiences to share?


Karl Ottenstein

No.  Only ARM to be supported is Apple ARM, which has a preview version of Archicad 26 available with the release available in the 4th quarter.


The rationale for Apple ARM is that Apple will no longer support Intel.  There isn't that rationale for non-Intel Windows chips (today).  Also, it appears the Snapdragon family is for lightweight use... I don't see that a powerful graphics processor is supported, which is required for Archicad.

Thanks Karl,
it seems I will have to stick with the usual Windows laptops... I'm just worried about the battery life.


If it's a new laptop, have you looked at laptop powerbanks? Might be a possible bridging solution to and battery life limitations.
