Since starting to work with Archicad 26 INT official release, I noticed a considerable drop in overall performance.
Compared to Archicad 25:
I experienced a LOT of
I generally always have Windows Explorer & Google Chrome open (G-Email, G-Calendar, G-Drive & other web pages loaded) along with web call & chat apps (ie. Telegram, Discord & MS-Teams. I always quit Zoom app after use, it's a real drain and grabs a lot of internet bandwidth in the background even when not in use). I use Google Earth Pro app a lot so it usually is open too. Other apps only loaded when needed.
My main computer is an ASUS-G703VR laptop with Windows 10 Home v21H1 operating system
Processor: Intel 6 Core i7-8750H CPU @ 2.20GHz (3.91GHz realtime)
Memory: 32,0 GB RAM
Graphics Card: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 6GB RAM
Looking for the cause I started noticing in Task Manager that Archicad 26 draws a LOT of system resources (refer image)
In this screenshot you can see both Archicad 25 (blue) & 26 (red) system load. In both versions I loaded my template (42.2MB) which are exactly the same setup with linked Libraries (nearly nothing in Embedded), Attributes, View Map, Layout Book & Publisher, Classifications & Properties... all the same, and no model in the file yet. There is a huge difference! Why?
Is anyone else experiencing the same issues? Any insights / advice on how to get Archicad 26 back to Archicad 25/24 performance levels?
Hi @Daniel Pataki
I posted this issue to also find out if others were having similar problems.
Although the file names on the screenshot are different, they are the same file just in different versions. I took the screenshot after saving the AC26 template as a project, before starting any modeling or edits.
Have any of you contacted your local technical support? Graphisoft's participation here is somewhat random, so it could be a day or forever before someone comments on the issues raised here, so I would not hold my breath waiting for a response.
