Ryzen 16 thread support

Recommended Posts

We are probably investing in a couple of new computers soon and I'm wondering if the new AMD powerhouse will be a good processor for Vectorworks.


We have done some in house tests on render times, and it is pretty clear that multiple cpu cores with as high clock as possible, and ram with high speed and timings have an impact on render time.


Will Ryzen be supported? Ryzen have 8 cores and 16 threads, and supports memory up to at least 3200 MHz.

It will be fine for RW Rendering, using all cores.

Single Core speed is also near as good as Intel so it will be also good for standard VW work.

I believe the upper limit of CPU core usage at the moment in Renderworks in 128 cores.

And yes, it will be compatible, no worries there.
