2022 - NextGen Tech to Keep Your Processes Cutting-edge


Recommended Posts

Sounds Great!

I have to point one thing out and it just may be the way my old brain works/doesn't.  The way Mr Johnson is sitting adjacent to the empty chair, it looks like he's sitting on some  kiddy furniture.

Sorry, but it made me smile!

And i did not expect, as I thought it will be delayed, that Windows gets already DirectX Graphics.

 

Most excited about native Apple ARM Version with Metal though and hopefully Optimization

for Thread assignment and for unified Memory.

(Tiled Rendering ?)

The advantages are difficult to compare Mac to Win.
That said, Direct X and Metal will improve VGM performance on each platform. Continued move to more multi-threaded processing, as with 2022 hidden line, will bring performance gains to each. What is different in 2022 is the gains provided by Apple Silicon. The performance gains from this technology obviously favor the Mac

With these mew advancements in the VGM will Vectorworks run faster on a Mac than a PC or are the advantages equal?

 

Just subjective but for me it feels like VW 2022 is much better on M1 Macs

but also more snappy on my AMD PC.

(But have to test and confirm with my hugest and lagging old Projects first)

 

If I am not wrong,

for the first time, with VW 2022, I can hear my AMD RX 6800 when rotating Models,

a bit like when using Twinmotion. (Coil whine and clicking sounds)

With my 2021 CAD Apps, the RX 6800 was more or less just idling ...

 

So far, I think supporting 2 separate native GPU Frameworks for both operating systems

was really worth the effort.

Could be also latest BIOS or AMD GPU Driver Update ...

But I tested and I think VW 2022 really feels faster with native DirectX.

(Did not hear the GPU noise this time though)

 

Just have problems saving certain Files on my macOS Monterey network

drive ... it works when saving locally on PC. While other Files save well

on my network drive ...
