    Hi every body, Many thanks for the support. It seems to be a good idea to wait a bit, I just read that AMD will release soon Ryzen 4000 series and radeon RX6000. Even if I don't go for last release CPU/GPU the price of previous generation will probably drop a bit. Best regards

    Hi Clint, Thank you for sharing your experience. According to Samsung datasheets the 970 EVO Plus seems to be as fast as 970 Pro. 3400 vs 3500 MB/s in read and 2300 vs 2300 in write... The only major change that I see is TBW an 12GB more. Pro EVO Plus My favourite PC components supplier in Switzerland sells 970 EVO Plus for 110 CHF and 970 Pro for 171 CHF, so the EVO is 36% cheaper and I don't see a good reason for invest more on 970 Pro. Even if 61 CHF will not make a big difference in my budget. Best regards

    Thanks for your feedback. Yes maybe I can wait for RTX 3000 series. Even if I take RTX 2000 series or something else, it is probably better to take PCI-e 4.0 motherboard in case of future GPU upgrade. So I selected the MSI B550 A PRO (AM4, AMD B550, ATX)

    Hi, Thanks you for your advice. After some research/reading on Vectorworks hardware requirement I decide to increase a bit my budget and components. Here is my new selection : CPU : AMD Ryzen 7 3700X, 8C/16T, 3.6 to 4.4GHz CPU Cooler : Cooler Master Hyper 212 RAM : 2x16 GB DDR4 @ 3200MHz (Corsair Vengeance LPX) GPU : RTX 2060 Super, 2176 CUDA core, 8GB VRAM (KFA2 GeForce RTX 2060 Super OC) Motherboard : ATX ASUS TUF B450 Plus Gaming Main storage : Samsung 970 EVO Plus 500Go, M.2 Additional storage : 2TB HDD 7200 rpm (Seagate BarraCuda) Case : Midi ATX tower (be quiet! Pure Base) Supply : 500W ATX (be quiet! System Power 9) According to https://www.cpu-monkey.com/de/compare_cpu-intel_core_i5_10600-1151-vs-amd_ryzen_7_3700x-929 Ryzen 7 have 5% less performance (compare to i5-10600) in Cinebench R15 single thread, probably negligible in normal VW works. I think this config is "strong" enough to run Vectorworks correctly, isn't it ? Best regards

    Hi, I'm planning to build a new PC to have better performance when working with Vectorworks. Here are the main components I have chosen : CPU : Intel Core i7-9700F, 8C/8T, 3 to 4.7GHz RAM : 16GB DDR4 @ 2666MHz GPU : Nvidia RTX 2060, 6GB GDDR6 SSD : Samsung 970 EVO Plus, 500GB, M.2 For the same price, I can choose the new Intel Core i5-10600, 6C/12T, 3.3 to 4.8 GHz. According to UserBenchmark the i7-9700F is slightly faster than i5-10600. Should I go for the Core i5 ? Any comments/suggestion for other components would be appreciated. Best regards
  6. Hi, I had windows 7 until yesterday (with a lot of upgrade waiting). I upgrade the OS to windows 10 and I was able to install vectorworks without any problems. Best regards
  7. Dear All, I'm trying to install VW 2018 and I got the following error : According to this message, my PC configuration doesn't meet minimal system requirement but I have : Intel Core i5 4570, 3.2GHz 16 GB DDR3 @1600 MHz 120 GB SDD with more than 50% free AMD FirePro V4900, (1GB GDDR5) Maybe my graphic card is obsolete but before buying a new one I want to be sure. Is there any installation logfiles that give me more information about failure in installation ? Best regards
