M1 Pro / M1 Max


announced today


Any early adopters want to share their experience with this?

Anyone from Graphisoft able to share the current status of M1 native Archicad?




I have some more questions in the same thread, hope it's ok to hijack. 😉
- will both AC24 and AC25 support both M1 Pro and M1 Max in the same time?
Do we have a date for this happening for planning in our companies?



I have not seen anything from Graphisoft other than this article by Minh:


which was last updated 7 Sept 2021.  There is no difference from a program perspective between an M1, M1 Pro and M1 Max (just as software that runs on the Intel i5, i7, i9, Xeon, etc processor).


That article gives no indication when a native M1 version (or Universal version) of ARCHICAD will be made available for any release.  The article reports that internal test in Rosetta 2 Intel emulation mode had no severe issues with AC23, AC24, AC25 or BIMcloud 2020.3 ... with a couple of issues listed at the end of the article.

It will definitely be interesting to see how Archicad would run natively on the new M1 Pro / Max given the reported performance increase, especially graphic power. I imagine that having high performance in Archicad and portability would benefit quite a few users. I’m keen to see what Graphisoft have planned for Apple silicon and what the real world stats would be like.

Hi all,


Thank you very much for your interest in this matter!

We plan to have the new machines tested as soon as possible. Due to the chip shortage, it may take a while for us to acquire these new machines. Once we have the result, we will share the result in this article.


Thank you very much!

Best regards,
