!Restored: ArchiCAD 12 Announced!

Akos Pfemeter
Dear Archi-Talkers,

On behalf of my colleagues at Graphisoft I am proudly announcing the brand new release of ArchiCAD 12. In this new version we will deliver you a very rich set of features covering three main areas: speed, design and documentation.

You can read detailed descriptions of all the new features on the ArchiCAD 12 website but I would like to highlight one feature that is beneficial to every single user no matter what type of practice it is or where it is located. This is the multiprocessor support in ArchiCAD 12, which is by the way an industry first for a BIM application.

We all have been waiting for this announcement for long, so I would like to thank you for your patience now. I hope you understand that because of business considerations we couldn’t disclose any information about the new release earlier.

I hope you will all enjoy using the new release as we enjoyed creating it for you. And I would like to especially thank our Beta Users who have been very supportive during the Beta period.

Please visit for more information on the new version. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact your local ArchiCAD representative.

I wish you all the best to ArchiCAD 12!

Well done to the whole team! Just the inclusion of multi-processor support must have involved a substantial re-write of the code so congrats for getting it done in less then a year! Give the coders a pay-rise!

I'm looking forward to using several new features that I could genuinely see as being useful to me everyday.

Thanks to all.

PS: BTW - I can't call up the extra information at the bottom of each video PR section - gives a blank screen when selected.

Does this support extend to Macs with PPC multiprocessors or just Intel based models?
Are there any tests demonstrating the increase of speed for Mac/PC computers for redraws, section generation, etc.?
