Hardware suggestions for computers

While reading the tips in this article, you should remember that a strong GPU is by far the primary element to have a great experience using Lumion. Memory, CPU and other specifications also have a part to play but a pleasant experience starts with the graphics card.

These suggestions aren’t directly influenced by any hardware maker. Lumion has no relationships with hardware brands or manufacturers.

Our aim is to show hardwarethat is free of external influences that we are confident will provide you with a fantastic experience when rendering using Lumion. It’s important to research every laptop and desktop prior to purchasing. Further down this page we’ll provide you with detailed advice on how you can make the right choice.

Graphics cards

We’ve offered recommendations for Nvidia graphics card. For a quick reminder that graphic card (or GPU) on your computer is what will display the Lumion work on your computer’s display. As you work on creating the background surrounding your project and displaying it, the graphics card will ensure an effortless and pleasant frame-rate (measured as FPS). When rendering an image, the GPU accelerates the rendering process to ensure that you capture the video, image or 360-degree panorama in a speedy and efficient way.

If you’re unsure the right graphics card for you for your needs, you can find more details within the Graphics Card Buyer’s Guide further down in this article. If not, take a look at some of the options below:

Desktop computers

What are the best desktop computer to run Lumion?

For the answer to this question within section titled Custom Build Computer section in this guide, however the essence is the need for a powerful GPU. It is essential to have a high-end GPU to render 3D graphics quickly and speed in Lumion and, while shopping make sure you take note of this specifications.

A high-quality desktop computer that supports Lumion is equipped with enough CPU to power graphic card components, sufficient memory for the system, a suitable power supply, and a 64-bit Windows 10 operating system.

When you’re looking for a Lumion-compatible laptop or desktop computer there are some important points that you must know:

There are a variety of models, configurations and kits for a variety of laptop and desktop computers. Some desktops, such as can be made to order and let you pick the type of technology you’d like within it.
The resolution of the screen has a significant effect on how fast. A screen with a resolution of 3840×2160 for example, is extremely demanding for an graphics card even using an RTX 2080Ti. If you have the option you can consider a screen with a resolution of 1920×1080.

There are several top-performing desktop computers that are priced at various prices. These are just a few examples of various workstations, but there are more robust desktop computers that could be examined.

Important note: Some the links below will lead you to a configuration page for your computer’s manufacturer’s site. Make sure to double-check the configuration of your computer prior to making any purchase to ensure it is compatible with the specifications of Lumion’s systems.

Laptop computers

A growing number of architects are taking their CAD drawings and renderings with them on the go and, thanks to rapidly growing laptop and graphics card technology high-end systems are becoming smaller and less expensive.

Here are a few top-performing laptops that are available at various prices. Remember that these laptops are just an example and there are plenty of similarly powerful laptops. Also, take note of the configuration, specifically when it comes towards the graphic card.

Do you want to build a custom computer?

Making your own computer from scratch or letting someone else create your dream architectural design and rendering machine? There are a variety of ways to simplify the process of creating an Lumion-ready machine.

It’s an excellent idea to read the remainder of this article to discover the specifics to optimize Lumion performance. In the second instance, if you’re headed to your local computer shop and want to inquire about the staff to help you, simply give them the Lumion System Requirements.

I’m looking for the most Lumion-ready computer that I can get

Graphics cards: card scoring an G3DMark that is 20,000 and greater
CPU: AMD Processor Intel achieving an individual thread CPUMark of 3000 or more
System memory: 64GB or more
Power supply: At a minimum, 80+ gold-rated and with enough power.
Operating System: Windows 10 64-bit

I have a budget that is average and am looking to improve the price/performance ratio

Graphics Card: card that has an G3DMark at 14,000 and more
CPU Intel/AMD Processor scoring a single thread CPUMark score of 2600
or greater
Memory of the system: 32 GB or more
Power supply: At least 80+ gold-rated, with sufficient power.
Operating System: Windows 10 64-bit

My budget is tight , but I need a stable workstation for scenes that are complex (large park or even a portion of the city)

Graphics Card: A card with an G3DMark of at least 10,000
CPU: CPU Intel AMD that has one thread with a CPUMark score of 2200 or greater
Memory in the system: 16GB or more
Power supply: At a minimum, 80+ gold-rated, with sufficient power.
Operating System: Windows 10 64-bit

Does your current laptop or computer laptop be compatible with Lumion?

If you’re looking to find out whether your computer is fast enough run Lumion the next step to take is verify the specs of your system.

There are basically four specifications that you will need to be aware of to ensure the best Lumion efficiency on your system, including:

Card for graphics (GPU)
Central Processing Unit (CPU)
The memory of the System (RAM)
Memory of a graphic card (VRAM)

If you already own Lumion You can get these information when you run a benchmark on your Lumion Home screen. If you don’t own Lumion make sure you can take advantage of the 14-day trial trial free of Lumion. The test will inform you whether the performance is poor, not good enough, or perfect.

There are various other ways to get information about the specifications of your PC. In particular, the approach that is described in this article uses DirectX diagnostic tool (DxDiag) on Windows 10. DirectX diagnosis tool (DxDiag) for Windows 10.

Simply click on the Windows Search bar, or use the keys WIN+S simultaneously
Enter DxDiag into the search box.
Start Dxdiag through clicking the result of a search
Note in the operating system, processor, and Memory
